    Emergency Response—Charity opportunity

    Humanists condemn the unspeakable shooting deaths of 9 people at the historic Emanuel AME Church in Charleston Wednesday, June 17. Violence motivated by hatred, intolerance, and racism has no place in our society today, and we want to extend our deepest condolences to the families of those who died.

    In response to this tragedy, humanist groups across South Carolina have started an Indigogo drive to aid the families impacted by this terrble event. All funds from this campaign will go directly to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund, which helps the families of the victims involved in the shooting.
