In a statement released, the Cascadians Against Hate Coalition stated that it "does not promote, permit, or condone any behaviors or actions of a sexist, racist, derogatory, or discriminatory nature . . . Moreover, we outright condemn all hate groups, their actions and ideas, as they run contrary to the core Cascadian bioregional beliefs and tenets. These groups threaten to undermine the sacred relationship between biodiversity and nature, which is the crux of life."
