AMAC Stands Together with the Jewish Community:

The Tennessee Muslim community is shocked and saddened by the shooting at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas which took the lives of three people. Our heartfelt condolence goes out to the victims and the entire Jewish community. No community in America is safe as long as any community remains under the threat of violence, especially if it is born out of hatred. As Americans, we must all work hard and stand together to ensure that religious tolerance and understanding enter into the hearts and minds of everyone.
