Heather Heyer’s mother is now continuing her daughter’s legacy of fighting hate. Heather was killed by a white supremacist while protesting in Charlottesville.
Two years ago in Charlottesville, a neo-Nazi drove a car into a crowd of people protesting white supremacy and killed Heather Heyer. May we honor her memory by speaking out against hatred, as she did, and working together to defeat it.
