NCPA CONDEMNS BIGOTRY AND VIOLENT PROTEST

The recent events in Charlottesville have occurred in the context of increasing polarization in political views throughout the country that is accompanied by anger and resentment. It also comes at a time when several minority groups are feeling increasingly threatened by the actions of government and nongovernmental parties. These factors have caused an increase in stress and anxiety among the citizens of our country, including North Carolina. NCPA condemns the racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, and anti-gay attitudes shown by many demonstrators in Charlottesville this past weekend. NCPA opposes discriminatory violence against others and mourns the loss of life that resulted from militant, organized bigotry. We are concerned about the increase in adverse psychological impact on both the targets and perpetrators of prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination. Click here to read the full NCPA statement.
