While the Hero/Zero column can sometimes use levity as a means of celebrating positive actions or calling out entities that harm our communities, there is no room for levity in what happened in Charlottesville this week.

We would simply like to acknowledge our heartfelt sorrow and dismay at the events that unfolded and the lives that were lost in the struggle to fight racism in our country. Our hearts remain with the people in Charlottesville, and our energy and zeal to continue calling out and fighting racists of ALL stripes remains.charlottesville
