"More women are killed by intimate partners in the United States than by any other group of people. It's not strangers, friends or acquaintances who pose the biggest threat to women's lives: It's the men they date and marry.
According to FBI and state crime data analyzed by the Associated Press, at least 6,875 people were fatally shot by romantic partners from 2006 to 2014. 80% of those victims were women."

"These murders are heartbreaking and they should be heartbreaking to every American. They show us a stark reality that bigotry is alive and well and that good people have to stand against it. That hate speech and scapegoating have real life consequences. Children are bullied in school, houses of worship are vandalized, and people are killed for the way they dress and how they pray." - Congressman Keith Ellison
