Speaking Out Against White Supremacy

” Injustice anywhere is a threat to injustice everywhere”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Shasta County Citizens Advocating Respect (SCCAR) will have a press conference at the MLK Center in Redding CA (outside by the mural) at 10:30 a.m., this morning, August 15, 2017 to:

  1. Speak out against the blatant racism, antisemitism, and fascist mentality brought forth so violently in Charlottesville. It is the antithesis of what it means to be American and a total dishonor especially to those who survived, perished from, or fought against the evils of Nazism.
  2. Insist that our public representatives disavow and condemn this behavior and reassure our citizens that:
    • this is not a political issue but an affront to all humanity and
    • they will respond similarly to any behavior that threatens the safety, well-being, and integrity of anyone or any group based on differences, real or perceived.
