Chicago mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot released the following statement in response to acts of terror at New Zealand mosques.

“I am horrified and deeply saddened by the acts of terror at New Zealand mosques,” said Lightfoot. “My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We’ve got to rise together—as a city, as a country, and all across the world—to condemn white supremacy and Islamophobia. We’ve got to build a world where everyone is safe, and where everyone can worship in peace and community.”
