I Stand with Virginia Educators. I stand with Charlottesville.

To: Members of the Virginia Education Association and its president, Jim Livingston:

Like all of you, and the rest of the nation, we were sickened by the horrible and frightening events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. As educators and unionists, we abhor the disgusting celebration of white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry that predictably erupted into violence and — ultimately — a repulsive act of domestic terrorism.

Know with unwavering certainty that your sisters and brothers of New York State United Teachers support you during these difficult days and we stand with you in solidarity as you go back to your classrooms and help the traumatized children of Virginia and their families to heal.

The brave men and women of Charlottesville who put themselves in harm’s way in defense of the real American values of inclusion, respect and fairness have our gratitude and respect. They stood up and said NO to bigotry. They said NO to injustice. And they said NO to hate.

Today, I add my name to this statement of support to signify that I am in solidarity with my VEA sisters and brothers and with the heroes of Charlottesville, as well as with everyone everywhere who stands up to the dark forces of racism and intolerance.
