Councilmember Pinto's statement on the terrorist attacks on Israel
I condemn the horrific acts of terrorism on Israel committed by Hamas, and I stand with our Jewish community here in DC and with the Israeli people. As Chairwoman of the Committee on the Judiciary and Public Safety, my top priority is the safety and dignity of all District residents. These acts of violence reverberate around the world and are personal for so many. As we yearn for peace during this painful and uncertain time, our Jewish neighbors have the support of the District government as we increase security and vigilance at our synagogues, houses of worship, and embassies to keep our communities safe.
