Columbia, SC+ The League of Women Voters of South Carolina extends our deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the Charleston shooting. We must honor the grace and dignity of those families by removing a symbol of division and pain in our state. We need to find this common ground and reconciliation to move our state forward.
The League of Women Voters of South Carolina supports Governor Nicki Haley's call to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina capitol grounds. We appreciate the voices of many of our state leaders and of the citizens of South Carolina in echoing the call to remove the flag and help our state move forward in the spirit of healing and social justice. The League took an active role in opposing the flying of the Confederate flag above our capitol in the year 2000 and we now support it's complete removal from the grounds of our state government. We call on our representatives in the General Assembly to take the next step.
