Trumka: School Shooting ‘Inexplicable Horror’

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka responded to today's tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children and seven adults dead.  

We want to express our extreme sadness for the community of Newtown, and particularly the families of the victims. As a father myself, this tragedy is a parent’s worst nightmare. This is a moment for America to come together and do what we do best—support one another as we try to recover from this senseless and inexplicable horror.

The death toll included 20 children along with AFT teachers and principal Dawn Hochsprung, a member of the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), all trying to protect their students.
