FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Statement from NABWMT

NABWMT STATEMENT ON
WHITE SUPREMACY IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA


The National Association of Black and White Men Together condemns the white supremacy that claimed three additional lives this weekend and the terrorism that engulfed a community and a nation.

As gay men committed to social justice, we are also appalled by the lack of moral leadership and lack of empathy for the targets and victims of domestic terrorism by groups and individuals motivated by hate and bigotry at the highest levels of our national leadership.

As men against racism we condemn the agenda on which President Trump ran as a candidate and is pursuing in office an agenda so clearly racist and xenophobic that it has once again been endorsed by David Duke, a man President Trump has never repudiated.

We as Black and White men committed to fostering supportive environments where in racial and cultural barriers can be overcome and the goal of equality realized we call on the President to:
  • Denounce in unequivocal terms white supremacy and white nationalist movements.
  • Declare that racism is a national crisis and declare a state of emergency to address the crisis.
  • Call on white Americans to take the lead to confront racism in their communities.
  • Fire White House aide Steve Bannon.
  • Convene a series of meetings with leaders of social justice organizations to confront the topic of racism.
Mr. President, subtlety is not your strong suit. The days of tolerance of racism, bigotry, and hate are over and the response of the President should not be subtle.

Gavin Morrow-Hall and Scott Duty
NABWMT Co-Chairs

David Griffith from LGBT Elder Initiative.

In this role, David oversees educational programming for LGBT elders and older adults living with HIV/AIDS, helping to connect individuals with the resources and services that they will need as they grow older. Additionally, David works with aging services agencies in the Greater Philadelphia region to improve the services available to LGBT populations and to promote greater LGBT cultural competence within the aging services network. David received his Masters of Social Policy and Masters of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice.
