New Leaders Council denounces white supremacist demonstrations in Virginia

Statement from NLC President Mark Riddle on today's white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, VA. 


NLC fully denounces the white supremacist demonstrations and acts of domestic terrorism at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. We call on our nation’s leaders, especially President Trump and his Cabinet, to come together and condemn this behavior rooted in hate and bigotry. This cannot be addressed just by a 140 character tweet, but through concrete action and discontinued divisive rhetoric that only sows seeds of division. It is clear that these demonstrations and violence are nothing more than an expression of hatred and have no place in our country. NLC and its leaders across the nation will continue to fight against bigotry and support inclusion to move our country forward.
