Rockville, Md., August 10 – RespectAbility firmly believes that there is absolutely no room in America for prejudice or hate of any kind. We express concern about the Unite the Right rally scheduled for August 12 in Washington, D.C. Hatred of all kinds undermines all people. We are a better nation when we are welcoming and respectful of all people. Let us remember the passion of Heather Heyer and the dozens of injured activists in Charlottesville who put their lives on the line in the ongoing fight for equality. RespectAbility is inspired by their steadfast perseverance, and we will continue to play our role in ensuring that America lives up to its creed for all citizens.
RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for the one-in-five Americans with a disability. People with disabilities cut across every group in America, including those of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations and identities, ages and religions.
