“As an organization with an office and beloved colleagues in Boulder, Colorado, Environmental Defense Fund is anguished by the slaughter of ten people at a local grocery store there.

“While authorities work to determine the gunman’s motive, our hearts go out to the victims and all who lost loved ones yesterday, including the families of Tralona Bartkowiak, Suzanne Fountain, Teri Leiker, Kevin Mahoney, Lynn Murray, Rikki Olds, Neven Stanisic, Denny Stong, Jody Waters, and police officer Eric Talley, the first law enforcement responder on the scene. EDF mourns their loss and grieves with all of those impacted. Gun violence affects not just its direct victims but the entire community.
