Lawson Statement on Violence in Charlottesville

August 14, 2017
Press Release

"The news out of Virginia is very troubling. We see clear as day that the struggle for equality and acceptance in this country is far from over. We cannot afford to go backward as a nation. No good comes from senseless bloodshed and we cannot let hate thrive and further divide us. 

We must strive harder to truly be that one nation under god, indivisible and with liberty and justice for all. Let us come together now with conviction and love for all our brothers and sisters and stand united against hate and bigotry."
