Letter to President Trump and Congressional Leaders Regarding Charlottesville

On behalf of SSSP’s Board of Directors, President Luis Fernandez, Vice-President David Embrick, and Executive Officer Héctor Delgado sent a letter to President Donald J.Trump to express the SSSP’s disappointment with his response to the recent neo-Nazi and white supremacist rally that occurred in Charlottesville.  Another letter was also sent to Congressional leaders from both parties, expressing concerns with the muted or absence of a response by many members of Congress to the President’s failure to condemn white supremacy and white nationalism more  swiftly and unambiguously. Additionally, both letters extended condolences on behalf of SSSP to the family of Heather Heyer and to the others injured in this domestic terrorist attack.
