Support Rev. Robert Wright Lee IV, a descendant of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who has spoken out against white supremacy.
The young minister has advocated the removal of pro-Confederate statues and has spoken publicly about the need to confront racism and white supremacy directly and defeat it. He appeared at the MTV Video Music Awards, held about two weeks after the incident in Charlottesville, to voice his message.
Soon after, his North Carolina church, which he joined in April, moved to vote on his tenure. He chose to resign in what appears to be a jumped-before-he-was-pushed situation. Evidently, several members were uncomfortable with his statements at the VMA.
Lee is not currently asking for donations, and he does not have a Patreon or anything similar. But you can show your support in other ways.
