Every time the Trump administration equivocates on white supremacy, it risks emboldening more acts of violence, harassment and discrimination.Njambi Good, Amnesty International USA Deputy Executive Director of Campaigns and Membership.

In response to events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Amnesty International USA Deputy Executive Director of Campaigns and Membership, Njambi Good, issued the following statement:

“The authorities must act to deescalate tensions in Charlottesville and take immediate steps to counter hate against people of color, immigrants, refugees, Jews, Muslims and others.

"Every time the Trump administration equivocates on white supremacy, it risks emboldening more acts of violence, harassment and discrimination. Around the world, we have seen what happens when governments fail to act consistently and promptly to condemn racial and ethnic hatred. Violence and discrimination result, and ordinary people pay the price of government inaction.”
