Where to find Life After Hate during Unite the Right 2 rally in Washington, D.C.

This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which became a defining moment of the so-called alt-right and its distinct brand of fear and bigotry.

On Sunday, Unite the Right returns, this time to our nation’s capitol. We believe that the best way to confront racist rallies is by sapping them of any oxygen. We advocate for fundraisers and counter-rallies that support ongoing efforts to reverse policies of entrenched racism and that support compassion for all people.

But we also believe that we must bear witness so that the lives of people like Heather Heyer, who died in the attacks against counter-protestors last year, are not in vain.

We believe that we must become allies to those who are the targets of this vitriol today, lest we find ourselves alone when we become the targets tomorrow.

Please join Life After Hate co-founder Tony McAleer for a Teach-In on White Supremacy at Washington Hebrew Congregation from 3 - 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10. Other guests and experts include the Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU and Wes Bellamy, Vice Mayor of Charlottesville. The event is open to the public.

McAleer, who is now chairman of Life After Hate’s board of directors, will remain in Washington throughout the weekend in solidarity with other civil rights groups and activists.
