We are marching from Charlottesville to Washington DC to demonstrate our commitment to confronting white supremacy wherever it is found. We can no longer wait for Donald Trump or any elected official to face reality and lead.
We are uniting right now to reckon with America’s long history of white supremacy and to demand leadership that will side with those of us who will no longer abide it. Over the last several years, white supremacist violence, rhetoric and policies have escalated and intensified - exploding during Donald Trump’s run for president and reaching a boiling point as people of moral conscience stood up to an army of white supremacists newly-emboldened in their hatred in Charlottesville.
We are answering the call from faith and community leaders in Charlottesville to confront and dismantle the white supremacist agenda in every community and taking the call for moral leadership to Washington, DC and the White House.
This is a time for us to live our values and confront white supremacy in our government and in our history. We are fighting for each other and our common humanity, demanding leadership that will actively fight this ideology of hate, and calling for the removal of all those, including the president, who refuse to do so.
Not only will we not accept white supremacy in the White House but we demand an agenda that repairs the damage done by its legacy.
