Standing Together Against Hatred and Bigotry

Racism and violence have been a dangerous reality for too long, not just in Charlottesville, but across the nation and in our local communities.

Hatred and bigotry are contrary to our values. Catholic Charities believes every person is worthy of dignity, love, and respect.

Silence compounds the problem. We have to call out racism, violence, hate, and terrorism to protect all humankind. We will use our voices and peacefully stand together with courage, faith, humility, and love.
