All of us watched in horror as the terrible and tragic events of last week unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, and our outrage mounted when American President Donald Trump refused to repudiate fascism and white supremacy. Many of you have issued statements to your members and the media to publicly denounce this rise of hate, and others have begun organizing against it. Your reactions have been swift, inspiring, and they have sent a strong signal to racists, bigots and hate-mongers everywhere.
The CLC released a public statement last week to respond to Charlottesville, but Hassan Yussuff, CLC President, is also sharing a personal response that calls for actions.
I hope you will read and share the statement below.
