On behalf of the National Campus Leadership Council, NCLC's Executive Director Andy MacCracken released the following statement:
"Student body presidents from around the country released a joint statement today condemning the acts of hate and violence by White supremacists in Charlottesville, VA, this weekend. NCLC reaffirms the statement and strongly encourages all student body leaders to join in and amplify that much-needed solidarity. What we are seeing is not normal. We must rebuild the broken national discourse, and we must all urgently rise to do what is required of us to start that process in our own campus communities and beyond. As we move into a new academic year, NCLC will do its part to stand with and support students leading these efforts nationwide, campus by campus."
