Statement from the Center for Public Representation on the events in Charlottesville

August 15, 2017

The Center for Public Representation condemns the hateful racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism that occurred over the weekend in Charlottesville. People with disabilities have experienced hate and violence on the basis of their race, religion, sexual orientation, as well as because of their disabilities, from groups like the white nationalists and neo-Nazis involved in the attacks over the weekend. As an organization that advocates for equality and inclusion, CPR stands in solidarity with all who oppose hatred, discrimination and violence in any form.
