Statement in response to Charlottesville

The small business owners of Main Street Alliance condemn the racism, violence, and hatred at last weekend's white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Amanda Ballantyne, National Director of Main Street Alliance, issued the following statement:

“The white supremacist rallies and violence of ongoing days are abhorrent and anti-American. There is no room on Main Street for the racism, bigotry and hatred we saw on display this weekend in Charlottesville.

Small business owners will not be silent when hatred, discrimination, and xenophobia are marching unmasked. For more than a year and a half, tens of thousands of small business owners across the country have declared Hate has no business here with a sign in their shop windows. Small business owners know their communities and economies are strongest and most vibrant when we defend and celebrate our diversity.”
