LOUDOUN, VA – Loudoun County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Valerie Suzdak has released the following statement on the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.
“On behalf of the Loudoun County Democratic Committee, I offer sincere condolences to the families of the victims of the hate crime in South Carolina. We also extend our solidarity with the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church community, which is grieving the loss of the SC State Senator Clementa Pinckney, Reverend Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, and 7 other victims of the tragic mass shooting at the church last night.”
“The gravity of this is deep and complicated. The Emanuel AME Church held a significant role in both the abolition movement and the civil rights movement. The church was involved in planning an uprising in 1822 to liberate people held in slavery, and after the June 17th uprising was thwarted, the church was burned. That this church was targeted on this date was no accident, and it requires us to reflect on how and why this kind of violence continues to plague our society.”
On June 26th at 5pm, the Democratic Party of Virginia will be hosting an event with special guest Hillary Clinton at the Patriot Center in Fairfax.
