Councilmember McDuffie issued the following statement on the inflammatory flyers that were posted and left on cars in parts of Ward 5 Sunday Night on June 25, 2017.
\”Let me state in no uncertain terms that bigotry is not welcome in Ward 5 or the District of Columbia.
I have spent my career fighting for civil rights and working to dismantle the legacy of discrimination that still exists in our society.
Ward 5 will not be intimidated by cowards who distribute these disgusting flyers anonymously, and we will defend and embrace the beautiful diversity of our city and community.\”
