A Response to the Events in Charlottesville

Dear BBA Family,

The demonstrations, violence and murders which have taken place over the last

24 hours in Charlottesville, VA are a heartbreaking reminder of how far we still

must go in the fight for equality and respect in our country. I am personally

saddened by the actions of the white supremacists leading these protests, and find

it shameful that any political or public figure would refuse to recognize their

actions as terroristic.
