Statement by AFSA President Diann Woodard on Domestic Terror in Charlottesville

AFSA strongly condemns the hatefulness and violence that has been on display over the last few days in Charlottesville, VA. There is truly no place for this type of evil, bigotry and blatant racism in our country. Our prayers go out to the victims and first responders that have been injured trying to promote peace, especially those that lost their lives. As leaders of our nation’s public schools, AFSA members promote the core values of our nation on a daily basis: equality, community and solidarity, and we join the labor movement and the rest of our nation in condemning this vile form of domestic terrorism.

 

In solidarity,

Diann Woodard

AFSA President
