Hartzler Statement on Charlottesville Violence

August 15, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) released the following statement after the violence in Charlottesville:

“Over the past few days America has witnessed the disturbing events in Charlottesville and the racism and violence that continues to inflict harm on our nation.  It breaks my heart that today's young generation is still having to witness this unAmerican way to settle disagreements. Racism is not acceptable in our society in any form and should not be tolerated. It is one thing to have disagreements on the validity of historical monuments but violence is not the answer. It cannot be tolerated. This is not representative of America or the values that we hold dear.”
