WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today on the one-year anniversary of white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, and ahead of another planned white supremacist rally this weekend in Washington, D.C.:

“With the one-year anniversary of the white nationalist march in Charlottesville bearing down upon us and those same hateful elements planning to rally again, we must stand in solidarity for a different vision of America. The vile ideology embraced by white nationalists and neo-Nazis will not win the day as long as people of good will work together to build a more caring, tolerant and just society. That must be our relentless pursuit.”
