Williams' Statement On Assassination Of Haitian President Jovenel Moise

July 7th, 2021

Press Release

"We offer prayers of peace and comfort to the family of President Moïse and his wife Martine, as well as to the Haitian people -both on the island and throughout the diaspora in the wake of this horrific attack on not just a person, but a nation. Violence is not a solution to the discord and pain that Haiti is experiencing, it will only perpetuate them.

"As the world watches - a world which was eager to appear before cameras in the wake of natural disaster but long ago abandoned the work of recovery - we pray for the people still suffering, and we all must follow our prayers and posts with assistance."
