AUCD Statement in Response to Violence in Charlottesville

AUCD joins with many in the disability and civil rights communities to condemn the hate and violence that were on display this weekend at the University of Virginia campus and in Charlottesville, VA. We stand in solidarity with all who have been and may be targeted by these hate groups and call on bipartisan elected officials at every level of government to condemn the racism and hate that we witnessed this weekend. We recognize the important role that we can play as leaders in higher education to help create campus environments where all can learn, all are welcomed, and no one experiences harassment, bullying, or violence because of who they are.
