Hate groups and domestic terrorists of all stripes went to Charlottesville, VA to push their dangerous message of white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry.
When they got there they waged violence on unarmed anti-racists, killing several and injuring many others. We mourn for the lives that were lost, and we will honor all those under attack by congregating against hate in our own community.
That these groups feel their way of life - the worship of Confederate idols, the notion that any race is superior to others - is dying, is a sign of the slow, painstaking progress we’ve made as a country to move beyond our oppressive past. We have so much more work to do to move towards liberation, and we will not let their hatred hold us all back
Join us in a peaceful demonstration in Petaluma to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville
