Buffalo shooting takes center stage during Westchester Black Women's Political Caucus meeting
Saturday's supermarket shooting in Buffalo took center stage during an event held by the Westchester Black women's Political Caucus in Valhalla on Sunday afternoon.
The tragedy weighed heavily on the minds of everyone in attendance at the fundraiser for Westchester’s Democratic Party.
Subomi Macauley, the head of the organization, also took a strong stance against the violence that claimed 10 lives and injured three others in the shooting that is now being called a hate crime by who police describe as an 18-year-old white supremacist.
"Hate crime is a serious issue...we must protect the citizens of New York state," she said.
The organization boasts chapters throughout the Hudson Valley, including Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, and Yonkers.
