June 18, 2015 10AM
Last night, a lone gunman murdered nine innocent people gathered at the historic Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun Street in Charleston. The Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry join the rest of the Charleston community and the world in condemning this senseless act of violence and in sympathy for the families of the victims. As humanists, we value the inherent worth and dignity in all people and express our condolences to the African-American community of Charleston that this space which is sacred to them was violated.
AME Church Shooting Victims Fund: A Website has been setup to collect donations from the humanist community. 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. Click here.
