PROVIDENCE, RI — After nearly 200 white supremacists rallied in Shelbyville, Tennessee this weekend for a 'White Lives Matter' rally, U.S. Senator Jack Reed issued the following statement:

“The resurgence of white supremacist rallies is abhorrent.  We need to forcefully condemn the hatefulness and bigotry displayed this weekend in Tennessee.  

“The Trump Administration needs to step up the fight against white supremacists rather than downplay the threat.  The federal government needs to provide resources to counter these extremists.  I urge President Trump to work with Congress and speak out against racism.”
