NCBW Statement on Paul Pelosi Attacj

Atlanta, GA, November 1, 2022 – The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated (NCBW) was horrified and disgusted after hearing reports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul was brutally attacked by an intruder in the couple’s home. We are delighted to hear Paul is expected to make a full recovery following surgery.

Our sympathies and prayers continue to be with the Pelosi’s during this traumatic time. The Speaker has been an ardent supporter of our organization and mission of advocacy for Black women and girls. Additionally, she was in attendance at NCBW 2022 Legislative Day and, Speaker Pelosi was presented the People’s Champion Lifetime Achievement Award.

It is alarming the man alleged to have attacked Paul shared numerous conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and COVID-19 on social media. We must condemn this type of violence and the false rhetoric that espouses it. The heated discussions and violence being perpetrated by lies must stop.

“We must not only condemn the violence, but we must also condemn the people who push and promote the baseless claims about the 2020 election, COVID-19, and the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol,“ said NCBW National President Elizabeth A. Jones.
