The mass shooting events over the weekend have touched us all. Like the rest of the nation, PAEA is deeply saddened by the tragic events that occurred in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these horrific events and mourn with those who lost family, friends, and colleagues.

With the El Paso shooting being investigated as a possible hate crime, we continue to uphold and strengthen our value of diversity and inclusion for all of our members and their programs.
