“I was deeply upset to see that military conflict has broken out in the region between Armenia and Azerbaijan after many peaceful years. I’ve personally visited both countries and was welcomed so warmly. It’s devastating that many lives have been lost on both sides – my heart breaks for the affected families. I‘m praying for an end to the violence for both countries.“
— Elton John on Instagram
This is the sort of headline we should never have to read.
What are you going to do today to stand up against hatred?
“We made a vow to ourselves, to our community, to our players, to the club, to USL, that we would not stand for bigotry [and] homophobic slurs – things that don’t belong in our game.”

The Proud Boys are a right-wing extremist group that promotes violence and hatred against anybody who is not like them. And they have been told to stand by.
We cannot let white supremacy be legitimized, nor can we sit and wait for this dangerous group to strike. Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant in the fight against hatred.
