New York Lawyers for the Public Interest stands in solidarity with Heather Heyer
, her family, the people of Charlottesville
, and all of our communities. Heather Heyer, a paralegal in Charlottesville was standing up to racism and white supremacy on August 12, 2017. She was standing up for NYLPI’s values and doing what our community does everyday. We condemn the murder of Heather Heyer and the violence against others who stood up against racism that day in Charlottesville. Heather’s murder ignites us to work even harder with our communities in the struggle for social justice. We will not let this tragedy hinder our resolve.

. The Graduate Student Coalition for Liberation created this resource to educate readers about the long history of white supremacy in Charlottesville, Virginia.
