Washington, D.C.- Following Trump’s racist attacks on members of Congress at yesterday’s rally in North Carolina, LCV President Gene Karpinski released the following statement:


“This week’s attacks on Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib are just the latest example in Trump’s long history of dehumanizing people who are courageous enough to confront his administration. As an organization committed to racial justice and equity, the League of Conservation Voters stands with these members of Congress and will continue to fight against Trump’s racist policies and rhetoric.”
