NYSPA Press Release:
Events at Charlottesville, Virginia

The New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA) were upset by the recent acts of intolerance, racism, and violence in Charlottesville, VA. We recognize that the experience of criminal and violent victimization has profound psychological consequences included, but not limited to heightened anger, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moreover, creates a general climate of insecurity. Therefore, we offer our condolences and support to all those who were affected by this tragedy.

As Americans and psychologists, we stand opposed to the White supremacist, homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Muslim ideas presented at Charlottesville and elsewhere in this country. It goes without saying that NYSPA, consistent with APA's (2005) policy on hate crimes, stands in opposition to all forms of hatred and discrimination.

As the Governing Board, we advocate for further efforts to eliminate racism and foster a respectful appreciation for multiculturalism and diversity, both in our professional encounters and in society at large.

Respectfully yours,
Herbert Gingold, PhD, President, NYSPA and Daniel Kaplin, Diversity Consultant to the Executive Committee
