can be provided to her family and the families of others who were injured and killed during the protest through GoFundMe campaigns online. Donations can also be supplied through the C- Ville Victim Relief campaign that was initiated by the Charlottesville community raise funds for victims and survivors of the chaos in Virginia that dreaded Friday. There is also the option for people to join local protests against the issue by use of the Indivisible website. This was initially created to protest the Trump 2016 agenda but now is useful for finding local planned protests in various cities all around the United States. You simply type in the name of a city near you and a list of protests will show up. If none are available you have the option of taking action and creating one yourself. Other deemable sites include Resistance Near Me and Rally List. This way we can combat the existence of white supremacist ideals that are still alive in America as evident by the issue in Charlottesville. The fighting for the removal of such monuments and against hate, racism and bigotry is only the first step in action for a greater America. Simply acknowledging the issue as a problem is not enough. We need to educate ourselves and others to rid the wave of ignorance surrounding the country. We can start in our own lives and by simply even just talking about it. Many people feel discomfort and even try to avoid ever talking about racism our even white privilege. But we must dismantle the notion that we have to be right or wrong and be open to the other perspective.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
