Taking a Stand Against Hatred in Our Community

The Williamson County Democratic party stands united against discrimination of any kind. We will not let hatred infiltrate our community and are firm in our rejection of any elected official or candidate who associates with, promotes, or accepts white nationalism, antiSemitism, or racism.

We are honored to stand beside all those in our community, regardless of party affiliation, who denounce the bigotry that has been accepted by some. Solidarity is the best way to respond to hate.
