LWV stands in solidarity with Charlottesville victims of violence
Washington, DC - LWVUS president Chris Carson issued the following statement following the horrific acts by white supremacists in Virginia last weekend:
"The world watched in horror as white supremacists gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia. There is no place for hatred and violence in our democracy and all leaders must condemn these acts of domestic terrorism. We must send a strong message that while the freedom of speech and the freedom of assembly are some of our most cherished rights and must be protected, those rights do not extend to what we witnessed yesterday. The League of Women Voters stands in solidarity with the victims of violence in Charlottesville and against white supremacism."
