MADISON VA – July 9, 2016 It is impossible not to be outraged by the devastating images of people being gunned down on a shockingly regular basis, and it should be impossible to remain silent in the face of this sustained injustice any longer. Sadly, the tragedies recently affecting all our communities are just a fraction of the violence that has been happening off camera in our nation for far too long.

The Madison County Democratic Committee believes all people deserve equal protection under the law and the right to a life free of discrimination, hatred and violence. We can do better, and by standing together to work for the changes that are needed, we will.
