Mayor Hagerty Reaches Out to Charlottesville Mayor

Dear Mayor Signer:

When I saw the news about Charlottesville this weekend, my heart became heavy. During these times, it can often feel like hate and division are the norm. However, I believe love, kindness, courage, and empathy will always be stronger than hate. On behalf of the City of Evanston and its residents, I would like to extend our collective thoughts, condolences, and prayers to the people of Charlottesville and all of those affected by Saturday’s violence.

As a nation built on democracy and strengthened by our diversity, we share your commitment to root our racism, bigotry, and intolerance in our communities. Several of our faith-based organizations and human rights groups are holding vigils this week and taking action to counter anti-Semitic and racist hate groups. While this does not alter what happened in your beloved community, I want you to know that the people of Evanston see its pain and will continue to do our part to build a city and nation that are united behind the values of respect, fairness, human dignity, and kindness.

There’s no place for hate in Charlottesville, Evanston, or any other community in America.

Please know that you have our thoughts and support during this difficult time.


Steve Hagerty
