The events in Charlottesville remain fresh in my mind, despite taking place almost a month ago (August 12). I don’t think I will forgot it. The most tragic element, of course, was the death of Heather Heyer. Today, I made a donation to the Heather Heyer Foundation:
The Heather Heyer Foundation was created to honor Heather Heyer, a young civil rights activist, who dedicated her life to promoting equal rights for all people. The Foundation has established a scholarship program to provide financial assistance to individuals passionate about positive social change. Scholarships will be awarded to those seeking a degree or certification in, but not limited to, law, paralegal studies, social work, social justice, and education. Help us make a difference, and as Heather had often quoted “If you’re not outraged you’re not paying attention” by Anonymous
I, for one, am paying attention. And I’m outraged.
