First Affirmative Statement Regarding the Weekend Violence in Charlottesville, VA
By George Gay

First Affirmative Financial Network unequivocally condemns the acts of domestic terrorism carried out by white supremacists this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

First Affirmative was founded on, and remains committed to, the principles of diversity, inclusion, and sustainability, and stands opposed to any behavior that is intended to deny the rights of, or to otherwise harm individuals or groups based on race, color, national origin, sex, sexual preference, gender identification, or religious belief.

We call on our elected local, state, and federal government officials, our community and business leaders, and religious and secular organizations to explicitly denounce this hate-based violence, and make clear that it will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

We also call on all individuals to reaffirm and act on the proposition that the United States, and the world, will always stand for justice and freedom for all, and unfailingly oppose the forces of hatred and violence.
