CHICAGO –(ENEWSPF)—August 12, 2017. Indivisible Chicago released the following statement in response to the events in Charlottesville
“Indivisible Chicago condemns the attacks by white nationalist in Charlottesville, Virginia that have already left at least one dead. Indivisible Chicago supports the right to free speech, however the hate and bigotry promoted by white supremacists gathering in Charlottesville is an affront to everything we stand for and has no place in society
We call on President Trump to take a stronger stand against white nationalism. His statements so far are not nearly enough especially since he and his administration (and political campaign) helped give voice and power to this hatred for the past year. The use of the phrase “on many sides” fails to denounce white supremacy and provides fuel to the very people responsible for these acts. The President must name the problem if he ever hopes to help fix it.”
Indivisible Chicago is a grassroots organization dedicated to resisting the Trump agenda by empowering local groups to hold their elected officials accountable.
