Standing Against Hate

Night Demonstration Against Hate Charlottesville Cropped 8 12 2017

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Heather Hyer who was killed on Saturday, August 12, in Charlottesville, VA, as she demontrated against a demonstration by "Alt Right" white supremacist groups. She was killed by a white supremacist who drove his car into the crowd of opposing demonstrators. NACRJ honors the stand that Heather took and we stand with her. We stand against the hateful views of white supremacists. We seek an inclusive, safe, just, equitable, and sustainable society based on love and respect for all. We think that vision is what Heather Hyer sought when she stood up against hate in Charlottesville.
