Resources and action in the wake of the Charlottesville Terrorist Attack
The entire team at Engaged Gaze is at a loss for words over the tragic events in Charlottesville last night. While we do not have solutions, we want to create a working page with resources for our readers. Our hearts are with all those affected by the domestic terrorist attack yesterday.

Before we go on, we want to acknowledge Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. His words were stronger than any others we heard yesterday and he was not afraid to name an evil for what it is. This is how you resist:
So, we will start a running open page with resources. Feel free to email anything you come across and we will post it. Also, you are welcome to comment in this article as well.
We are the RESISTANCE. We will and can be the good.
