The Virginia AFL-CIO Calls on Ralph Northam to Resign

The Virginia AFL-CIO and the entire labor movement fight to eradicate bigotry and prejudice both within and outside of the workplace. The photo featured in the Eastern Virginia Medical School year book on Governor Northam’s page is a horrendous reminder of the hatred and racism that continues to rear its ugly head across the United States. Conscious of Virginia’s dark history, we recognize that reconciling the past is not easy, and confronting today’s realities isn’t any easier. But without hesitation, we must condemn bigotry and racism wherever we may find it. Therefore, the Virginia AFL-CIO calls upon Governor Ralph Northam to resign from office so we may start to heal and move forward as a Commonwealth.
