The Proud Boys and other white supremacists targeted Asbury United Methodist Church and Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, two historically Black churches with acts of violence on Saturday night in the midst of pro-Trump rallies.

Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, has condemned the attack.

“In no uncertain terms, we condemn the Proud Boys and other white supremacists who targeted historically Black churches in D.C. with acts of violence. Their Klan-like actions harken back to the days of Jim Crow and their destruction of Black Lives Matter signs are nothing more than modern-day cross-burnings intended to intimidate and terrorize the Black community," Clarke said.

"These historically Black churches are important institutions in D.C. that have a long history of standing against oppression and providing a safe haven for communities of color. We call on the U.S. Department of Justice to immediately open a federal civil rights investigation under the Church Arson Prevention Act to hold accountable those responsible for these racist and violent acts.”
