NAACP Vermont chapters deplore ‘senseless act of violence’ against Palestinian American students

In light of the recent tragic incident in Burlington, Vermont, the Vermont branches of the NAACP express our heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families.

The violent shooting of three Palestinian American students is deeply distressing, and we stand in solidarity with the affected community during this difficult time.

Our hearts go out to Hisham Awartani, Kinnan Abdalhamid, Tahseen Ahmed, and their loved ones. This senseless act of violence has not only caused them physical harm, but it has also shaken our collective sense of safety and well-being.

We echo the calls from the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee for a thorough investigation into this incident as a hate crime. It is crucial that law enforcement, including the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice, diligently pursue justice and bring the perpetrator to account.
