A GROWING THREAT. VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK HERRING.

One Commonwealth PAC
David: 

No matter what we look like, where we come from, how we worship or who we love, we are all Virginians. Each one of us is an important part of our Virginia family who deserves to feel safe and welcome.

To me, that's a Virginia value.
That's why I have been working so hard over the last few years to address the frightening rise in hate crimes and white supremacist violence. It's happening here in Virginia, where more than 200 hate crimes were reported in 2017, and all across the country, with the FBI recently reporting a 17% increase in hate crimes nationwide.

We must make it absolutely clear that hate will never be allowed to take hold here in Virginia.

We must reject racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacist ideology, supporters of which have become so emboldened and so dangerous in recent years.
Last weekend, I wrote about the threat of white supremacist violence in The Washington Postand also explained some of the new legislation I'm introducing to better protect Virginians from hate crimes and white supremacist violence.

I hope you'll take a minute to read it and share with your friends and neighbors. We must all stand together, side by side, to repel the forces of hatred, racism and fear.

Thanks,

Mark
