Social sector responses to Charlottesville
Last month, we sent an email listing several written responses to the Unite the Right rally on August 12 in Charlottesville, VA and the subsequent events. Since then we have been collecting responses from our members, peer philanthropy-supporting organizations, and national foundations. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all that has been written, and we expect it will continue to grow.
