Brown Condemns Violence in Charlottesville

CLEVELAND, OH – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) condemned violence today in Charlottesville, VA.

“The bigotry and violence we’ve seen in Virginia have no place in America. I am grateful to those who put themselves in harm’s way today to peacefully protest against racism and hate,” Brown said. “As we learn more, my thoughts are with all those injured and their families. I am grateful to Virginia law enforcement and first responders. Ohio stands behind Virginia as the state copes with this senseless violence. We must not tolerate racism, threats, intimidation or violence.”
