A state of emergency in Charlottesville

We, the people of the United States, denounce white supremacy.

Add your name: Denounce white supremacy

We stand united against white supremacy, neo-Nazis, and the "alt-right." We denounce their toxic hate, fear, and violence. We must come together to condemn the ideas that fueled the violence in Charlottesville this weekend.

Dear MoveOn member, 

A state of emergency was declared this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, after hundreds of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and members of the "alt-right" terrorized the city with toxic hate, fear,  and violence.1

With Donald Trump refusing to condemn the white supremacist hate and violence on open display this weekend, we need to show each other, as people in the United States, that together we are ready to stand against and denounce white supremacy and the ideas that fueled the actions in Charlottesville this weekend.

Sign and share this expression of unity and openly ask your neighbors, friends, and family to stand united against white supremacy today.

Thanks for all you do.
