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.
Thanks for all you do.
—Justin, Maria, Corinne, Erica and the rest of the team
