In response to the violence in Charlottesville this past weekend, Stand for Children CEO Jonah Edelman issued the following statement:
“The violence and horror witnessed in Charlottesville this past weekend was sickening. There is no space or excuse for white supremacy or any other form of bigotry. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims of this senseless display of hatred.
In a time when hostility, division and hatred are all too common, Stand is committed to increasing its efforts, together with our partners, to help make schools a safe, welcoming environment. All of our children must feel safe, secure and supported."
