Ways to combat hate, bigotry and discrimination and help the victims of Charlottesville – Patriot NOT Partisan

20.8.17

Ways to combat hate, bigotry and discrimination and help the victims of Charlottesville – Patriot NOT Partisan: The recent violence in Charlottesville, VA has many of us upset, hurt, confused and not sure where to turn to. We want to help, but it can be overwhelming. We may feel defeated and disheartened. We may feel like giving up, but we can’t. We have to keep fighting for people like Heather Heyer and Deandre Harris and all the nameless victims affected in Charlottesville and around the globe. Since the 2016 election, instances of race-based violence and threats have increased across the country, and the white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville proved that racism is still very much alive in America. Things aren’t going to change over night. It will take years to fix the system, stop the violence and help the people who are disadvantaged and oppressed. We need a giant shift in action and our beliefs if we are to continue the headway that has been made so far. We all talk about wanting a better world for our children, but we need to be willing to stand up, yell, fight and do something to make that happen. We are better than what happened in Charlottesville and now is the time to prove it!

I’ve compiled a list of ways you can help and organizations you can donate to. It’s not always about monetary donations. You can help by volunteering and making phone calls. Make your voice heard and let’s band together to stop this hatred and violence!
