UNITED UNION OF ROOFERS, WATERPROOFERS AND ALLIED WORKERS STATEMENT ON HATE IN AMERICA

WASHINGTON(8/18/17) The leadership and members of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers are professionals and patriots who love their country, their families and their communities.
We reject hate as ideology and we cannot, and will not, condone violence and intimidation as a political tactic in any manner and certainly not in the public square or in our democracy.
Hate has always existed in this country and around the world, but throughout our union’s history men and women of character and strong moral compass have shown leadership in the face of fear and bigotry, to reaffirm the ideals we espouse as a nation to bring us together and provide freedom and equality to all.
We are at a time when we need men and women of character to demonstrate leadership and unequivocally reject those who perpetrate hate, racism, sexism or any other manner of corrosive public discourse and action that only serves to weaken us as a country.
The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers stand firmly with those who seek to provide opportunity to all – regardless of race, religion, education or geography. We call on all elected officials, community leaders and our fellow Americans to join us and unmistakably denounce hate in all its forms and to reject the false claims of bigotry.
