Press Release

RICHMOND – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued this statement following the horror in Charlottesville:

“I’m saddened and disgusted by the pictures I have seen out of Charlottesville today. This is not the Virginia or Virginians I know and love. In the Virginia I know, we recognize the value of diversity, the strength of sticking together and that love breeds love.

“My heart is broken at the loss of life, the injuries and the fear that has been shown this weekend. I commend those who stood against these Klansmen and Nazis. These people will not win. The bigotry, hate, and anti-Semitism they peddle has no place here and no place in our great nation. All good people flinch at the horror we have seen unfold this weekend.

“Together, we will stand against them. Together, we will speak out. Together, we will push back. Together, we will resist hatred in any form. Together, we will win.”
