Statement by World Learning CEO Donald Steinberg on Charlottesville

World Learning is committed to empowering global citizens to build peace, social justice and inclusive societies. The tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend is a sobering reminder that our work is far from done, and that our global development, exchange and educational programs to strengthen cross-cultural communications and understanding have never been more important. We condemn in the strongest possible terms the racism, religious intolerance and xenophobia that underlies the actions of those who spread hatred and violence. As committed global citizens, we cannot and will not give into despair and inaction; instead, we pledge to redouble our efforts to build a world that cherishes and benefits from diversity.
