The Upstate community is standing up in unity in response to the upcoming KKK Rally in Abbeville, SC on July 25-27.
Our message is simple:
- We are a diverse community in race, age, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
- We are people of different faith traditions, and those without faith traditions.
- We are standing up together to combat the ideals of the KKK.
- We believe in equality.
- We believe in the power we each hold when we stand together to create a grassroots movement driven by love.

- She also serves as director of the Civil Rights Memorial Center in Montgomery, Alabama, an interpretive center designed to provide visitors to the Civil Rights Memorial with a deeper understanding of the civil rights movement.
