AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest, a former vice president at Family Research Council, expressed “grave concern” for her former colleagues who today experienced a shooting incident in which a security guard was injured at FRC’s Washington D.C. headquarters.

Dr. Yoest said, “The thoughts and prayers of the entire AUL team are with our friends at Family Research Council. In particular we are focused today on the shooting victim, who is a brave and courageous friend who is dedicated to defending family, faith and freedom. This kind of violence should be condemned in the strongest terms. Our hope is that this will result in a renewed commitment to peaceful dialogue over the issues confronting our culture.”
