The Madison Democratic Town Committee passed the following resolution regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia by unanimous vote at the August 14 meeting:

It is resolved that the Madison Democratic Town Committee strongly condemns the recent incendiary and violent actions of white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Racism, bigotry, and hatred are not American values and do not have a home in our democracy.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, and to the people of Charlottesville.

We stand together with them against this attack on our nation and its ideals.

If you wish to help the residents of Charlottesville, there are many worthy donation sites. Here is just one: C-ville Victim Relief.  Unity Cville is a group of Charlottesville community members raising funds to help support the victims of the August 12th terrorist attack and Alt-Right demonstration events in Charlottesville, Virginia.
