Statement from Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle on Violent Attack in Charlottesville

August 12, 2017

What we have seen on display in Charlottesville is the kind of raw hatred, racism and xenophobia that has no business in our nation. Denunciation of this behavior cannot be strong enough and cannot be ambivalent. Hatred must be condemned swiftly, constantly and consistently, and cannot be conditional or tolerated.
