Original press release from NGLCC

NGLCC released the following statement in condemnation of the attack against Americans in Charlottesville, Virginia:

“The NGLCC and our allies in business will not remain silent in the face of attacks on America’s diverse communities. Charlottesville must be a wakeup call

that we cannot ignore the hatred that

exists against Americans based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ability, and more. Diversity is the lifeblood of this nation, and celebrating our diversity is essential for our moral and economic wellbeing.

The hearts of the NGLCC family go out to those harmed by these attacks, and attacks like this around the world. Our outrage must be focused on supporting the health and wellbeing of our diverse communities, ensuring their voices are elevated, celebrated, and encouraged to thrive.  There has never been a more important time for solidarity among America’s diverse communities, our allies, and the businesses who believe in them.”
