Statement From Mayor Emanuel on the Mass Shooting in New Zealand

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

"An attack on any place of worship is an attack on all places of worship. It shouldn't be lost on anyone that, following the attack on the synagogue in Pittsburgh, the first community that spoke up and offered support was the Muslim community. The first group that offered financial support was the Muslim community. I want all of our Muslim brothers and sisters to know that Chicago welcomes them and welcomes their sincerity of prayer for our common humanity."

On background

While there is no credible threat to Chicago, the Chicago Police Department is providing special attention around mosques in the city.
