Rep. Gene Green Statement on Violence by White Supremacists in Charlottesville

August 14, 2017
Press Release

HOUSTON, TX — Today, Representative Gene Green (D-TX) released the following statement on the violence following protests by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia:

“I stand with the rest of America and condemn the actions of the white supremacist groups that were responsible for the violence this weekend. The actions that took place in Charlottesville do not reflect the values that America stands for and should not be tolerated. Racism, bigotry, and hate have no place in our country and we must continue to disavow the white supremacists that were responsible for the violence. My thoughts are with the families of Heather Heyer, the two Virginia State Troopers who tragically died defending justice, and the city of Charlottesville.”
