Aug 18, 2017

The Southern Poverty Law Center says it has added Heather Heyer's name to its Wall of Tolerance at the Civil Rights Memorial Center.

Heather Heyer, she was killed during the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend

 The SPLC said on its website Friday that it had added a tribute to Heyer to its center in Montgomery, Alabama.

    The 32-year-old Heyer was killed when a car careened into a crowd of counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.    The tribute features a digital portrait of Heyer that stretches from the bottom of the 20-by-40 foot Wall of Tolerance up to the ceiling. The digital wall displays the names, cascading continuously from top to bottom, of more than 500,000 people who have pledged to take a stand against injustice.
