WVDP Chair Statement on #Charlottesville

Bridget McGuire Blog, Press Releases

“Our thoughts to out to Charlottesville and the families of those who were injured and lost their lives. As Americans and West Virginians we stand firmly against the hatred and bigotry displayed this weekend.

“Let’s be clear for President Trump not to condemn the white supremacists groups that gathered in Charlottesville for a “unite the right” rally is typical for him, but disastrous and disturbing for America. “Many sides” were not involved in the violence and hatred on Saturday.

“Every single day we fight for a better America and every single day we’re reminded that we still have a long way to go. We must continue to stand together and stand against hatred like this.”
