"What happened over the past 24 hours in Charlottesville is nothing short of overt racism and white supremacy, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of such unnecessary violence. President Trump said there are ‘many sides’ to the violence that occurred, but there was only one. You are either on the right side of history, or the wrong side. There is no room in the middle. In Rochester, we stand up for the progressive values that Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass fought for - and we will continue to do so by combating the structural racism and inequities that still plague our community. I am proud that our Deputy Mayor, Dr. Cedric Alexander, represented those values as a trusted expert on CNN today, and we will continue to ensure Rochester is a welcoming place for all."
