We’re Thinking Of The Families in Charleston

Thugs and terrorists have attacked black churches for generations.

Last night’s hate attack in Charleston is beyond heartbreaking. We’ll be thinking about Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Reverend Clementa Pinckney, Cynthia Hurd, Tywanza Sanders, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lee Lance, Daniel L. Simmons, Reverend Depayne Middleton-Doctor, Susie Jackson and their families. Sign this card from ColorofChange.org to offer sympathy and support for survivors and families of those killed.

We want to use today’s email to provide some context and resources. Over the next few days we’ll also be providing information about different ways to take action. Also, please email us at [email protected] if you have any ideas or requests for our coverage of the tragedy.
