Aug 14, 2017
Press Release

Charlotte, N.C.—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after violence broke out in Charlottesville, VA following a white supremacist rally on Friday. 

“The hate and violence we’ve witnessed in Virginia is reprehensible and has no place in our society,” said Congresswoman Adams. “As a nation, we are better than this. It’s time we come together to stand up and boldly stamp out bigotry and hate. 

“The Presidents unwillingness to forcefully condemn the actions of these white supremacists is unacceptable. My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those lost, those injured, and the city of Charlottesville as the community heals from this horrific event.”
