We stand with Charlottesville. We stand united against hate and bigotry. We stand against white supremacy and racism. We stand united in the fight for justice for all people. 

On Saturday, August 12, a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA turned from violent to deadly as white supremacists clashed with counter-protesters. On the second day, a car sped into a crowd, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of other peaceful counter-protesters. The attacks against people of color and allies, fueled by hatred and bigotry, were even further escalated by the response from the Trump Administration.

Planned Parenthood South Atlantic condemns the ideology of white nationalism and its tactics of intimidation through racist violence, fear, and hate.

- Jenny Black, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic

As long as the injustice of racism persists, none of us can be silent or neutral. It’s on all of us to confront racism and dismantle white supremacy. Now, more than ever, it is unacceptable to remain silent as marginalized and oppressed communities face appalling attacks.

“At Planned Parenthood we’re speaking out and standing with our partners who fight for racial justice, because white supremacy affects the people who come to us for care, and their ability to determine their own destiny.”

– Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund

Stand Against White Supremacy and Hatred

Let’s direct our outrage into making this world a safer and healthier place where every person lives free from bigotry, discrimination, and violence.
