Susan Bro, mother of Heather Heyer, testifies before House committee about white supremacist violence


Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, testified Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform about white supremacist violence.

Heyer was killed on Aug. 12, 2017, when James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio drove his car into a crowd of people protesting the Unite the Right rally in downtown Charlottesville.

The hearing, according to the committee website, was organized to “examine the [Trump] administration’s efforts to collect accurate statistics on and combat white supremacist hate crimes and domestic terror,” as well as to “discuss the impact on the communities most victimized and targeted by white supremacists.”

Bro, who lives in Greene County, primarily used her time during the roughly two-hour hearing to advocate for better analysis of hate crimes and a stronger approach to combating racist violence.
