Sorry I haven't posted this weekend. This weekend, the ugly part of my country reared its head in Charlottesville. This is a time when Nazis and Klan members walk boldly in the streets, sans hoods and secrecy. Protect your POC and Jewish friends. Educate the people around you. The time for being a moderate and not wanting to rock the boat is OVER. This weekend showed that it doesn't take a nuclear war threat for POC to feel like they can die at any given moment.
Here are some ways you can support and donate from afar:
@NAACP in Charlottesville: albemarle-cvillenaacp.org
Beloved Community Charlottesville: belovedcommunitycville.com
Black Lives Matter Charlottesville: PayPal.me/blmcville
And finally, a GoFundMe for Heather Heyer, who died when a murderer ran his car into a crowd of counter protestors: gofundme.com/our-sisters-keeper-heatherheyer
I'll be writing a blog post with direct links soon.
