Statement Regarding Charlottesville

August 17, 2017 Sonar

Sonar works to dismantle the Western cultural framing that causes significant harm to humans, cetaceans, and all species. We are committed to anti-racism and anti-speceisism.

The events in Charlottesville serve as a tragic reminder that there is much to be done to eradicate harmful prejudices that perpetuate bigotry, fascism, anti-Semitism, and that give rise to groups such as Neo Nazis, KKK and others.

We condemn the insidious ways that white supremacy operates on all systemic levels of our society: the education system, criminal justice system, the financial system and beyond.

Our hearts go out to the victims of Charlottesville. We stand in solidarity with all those who work towards a better, more compassionate, more understanding world for humans of all races and genders, and animals of all species, everywhere.
