On Saturday, the egregious display of racism and bigotry in Charlottesville served as a reminder: we have a long way to go to end the ugly history of white supremacy in the U.S.
As we reflect on and grieve the violence we must also ask a key question: What can you and I do to fight white supremacy in this country?
I have some ideas about what we can do. Below there is a link where you can share your ideas too.
When we take on the hydra-headed beast of racism in our society we can take action on many levels and in many ways. We can hold vigils and rallies in our communities, work to help protect those people who are targeted in our communities, and push to change entrenched unjust policies at the local, state and federal level.
Let’s also attack white supremacy at the very top. Write your members of Congress today and ask them to push for the ousting of Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka.
