VSB President Doris Henderson Causey’s Statement on Charlottesville

Doris Henderson Causey, president of the Virginia State Bar, released the following statement today about the events in Charlottesville this past weekend:

As Nelson Mandela wrote, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

The Virginia State Bar comprises about 50,000 lawyers and judges. We support the Constitution and the rule of law, and we condemn any organization or group that doesn't.
