Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) released the following statement on the upcoming anniversary of the white supremacist gathering in Charlottesville, and the murder of Heather Heyer.

“America is the strongest nation in the world because we, the people, are bonded not by a shared ethnicity or religion, but by the shared values of life, liberty and the self-evident truth that all people are created equal. This is the promise on which America was founded, but without the daily pursuit of justice and equality for all, this promise will go unfulfilled.

“As we mark the one year anniversary of the violent white supremacist gathering in Charlottesville, and honor the memory of Heather Heyer, we stand united in rejecting the worst impulses of racism and xenophobia that have long fractured our nation.

“When hate and fear rears its ugly head, we must stand united in love and defend all who are targeted. We must stand united in our commitment to pursue equality and justice. We must stand united, and affirm our commitment to fight for a better America -- to continue down the path of progress towards a more perfect union -- and through our acts of civic courage, those who thrive on hate and fear will know that we are never going back.”
