NJEA Statement on Shooting in Highland Park, IL

We are saddened and outraged by yet another mass shooting, this time in Highland Park, IL. The victims deserve more than our thoughts and our prayers; they deserve action to make our community safer.

We are relieved to know that the NJEA members attending the NEA Representative Assembly in Chicago, just a few miles from the shooting, are safe. They will continue to carry out the work of our union, including fighting for safer, stronger communities for our students and their families.
