Statement from the WSHRC regarding Charlottesville, VA

Monday, August 14, 2017
The Washington State Human Rights Commission works to ensure that everyone has the right to be free from discrimination. The events in Charlottesville, VA are tragic and a reminder that there is still much that needs to be done to educate and eradicate the prejudices that perpetuate hate and bigotry in this country.

Statement on Oregon Murders

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

We at the Human Rights Commission are shocked and deeply saddened by last week’s stabbings in Portland, Oregon that left two persons dead and one seriously injured. We wish to recognize the bravery of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche and Ricky John Best, who died, and Micah David-Cole Fletcher who, thankfully, has been released from the hospital. These men stepped forward to protect two young women who were being verbally assaulted in an apparent act of hate. Their courage and selflessness exemplify the best of humanity. Mr. Namkai Meche’s last words should resonate with us all: “I want everyone on the train to know I love them.” Our thoughts are with their families.
