A statement passed by the Selectboard at the Sept. 21, 2020 meeting:
The Town of Newfane condemns hate speech, prejudice, and acts intended to induce fear in any person based on their identity. We are a community of diverse backgrounds and opinions, and we draw strength from it. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and feel safe in our beautiful town.
