The Trevor Project’s CEO & Executive Director, Amit Paley, released the following statement in response to the hate rallies in Charlottesville, VA:
“The Trevor Project condemns all hatred, discrimination and violence. The actions of white supremacists this weekend–who physically and verbally attacked people of color, LGBTQ people, and others—are unacceptable and un-American.
Our hearts go out to those hurt by these hateful actions, and especially to the family and friends of the people who lost their lives.”
If you are an LGBTQ young person and are feeling hopeless, fearful, suicidal or just need someone to talk to, The Trevor Project is always here for you. You can call our 24/7 Lifeline at 1-866-488-7386 or reach out via our text and chat services at www.thetrevorproject.org/help.
