Collins Statement on Charlottesville

Aug 14, 2017

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement in the aftermath of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia:

“Americans are grieving for the pain and violence that flowed out of Charlottesville this weekend, and I join them in rejecting racism and white nationalism as abhorrent. Our belief in universal human dignity continues to undergird this nation and to be incompatible with such hateful prejudice. I believe condemning bigotry is a necessary step in tilling the ground for peace, respect and love to deepen their roots in all of our communities.”
