Rep. Yarmuth Statement on the Removal of UofL's Confederate Monument

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the statement below following the joint announcement by Mayor Greg Fischer and University of Louisville President James Ramsey of the removal of the Confederate Monument on UofL’s Belknap campus

“I heartily welcome Mayor Fischer and President Ramsey’s decision to remove the Confederate monument from UofL’s campus. It honors a shameful episode in our nation's history, one that represents a hateful division and fails to truly reflect our city and Commonwealth’s role in the Civil War.”
