Yet again we must publicly condemn remarks made by Gov. LePage. His continued use of racist, xenophobic, homophobic, and violent rhetoric is a disgrace and outrage. As an organization committed to building a future free from violence and discrimination, the Maine Women’s Policy Center finds abhorrent Gov. LePage’s comments calling for violence against people of color. We call on all elected leaders in our state to join us in condemning his remarks.
