WHATCOM — Reps. Suzan DelBene of Congressional District 1 and Rick Larsen of the 2nd District together issued an Aug. 23 statement condemning recent white supremacist activity locally in Whatcom County, of which they both represent a portion.

White supremacist literature was posted in Ferndale and Bellingham a few weeks ago.

“We were saddened and disgusted to learn that white supremacists were posting flyers in Whatcom County. Diversity makes our communities stronger. We will continue to stand united with all who denounce and work against racism, bigotry and xenophobia,” they said in their statement.
