U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, D-District 7, condemned the violence that happened Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, following protests at a white nationalists rally. 

Sewell issued the following statement:

“I am deeply disturbed by the act of terror which was committed Saturday in Charlottesville. As a nation, our message must be clear: racism, white supremacy, and violence will not be tolerated. I send my prayers to the victims in Charlottesville, their families, and the first responders who are working to keep their community safe. This tragic violence is a reminder that we must recommit ourselves to ending racism and bigotry wherever they exist.”

The violence at the protests left three people dead and dozens injured.
