Deutch Statement on Two Years Since Stoneman Douglas Tragedy
Today marks two years since the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, when we lost 17 members of our community. Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) will honor the memory of the victims by participating in community-based events throughout the day.
Congressman Deutch issued this statement:
"February 14 will always be a painful reminder of the day in 2018 when we lost 17 lives in the senseless act of gun violence. I'm grateful to be part of a community that has grown stronger together and that unites today to honor their memory through acts of service. Together, we will continue the fight for new laws and policies that will keep our schools and communities safe and prevent future tragedies. I renew my commitment to the victims' memories, to the victims' families, and to the survivors that I will continue to do everything I can to honor them with action."
