Statement on Charlottesville, VA Events

We condemn in the strongest terms the violent and hateful actions by white supremacists this past weekend in Charlottesville, VA. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

The beliefs and acts of these bigoted domestic terrorists run directly opposed to the values of our union – inclusion, respect and equality. We thank our national, state and local leaders who have spoken out and stand with us against those who seek to divide us with hateful rhetoric and acts of violence. This is not the time to remain silent.

We are stronger together.

-SEIU Local 1000
