The terrorism and intimidation inflicted on Charlottesville, VA (and the threat of more violence to come soon) by white supremacists is a tangible reminder of the justice work that remains in our hands. Let this tragic expression of hate spur us to work even more fervently for justice, peace and inclusion. Let us continue learning and teaching about systemic racism to everyone we know. Let us be involved even more deeply in our communities to root out hatred by replacing it with love and respect for each others’ dignity as human beings. Let us find ways to communicate to White supremacists that oppressing others will not lead them to the goals they desire: security, freedom, stability in employment. Let us counter the worst with our best and build a world where everyone’s dignity is realized.
