In a moving tribute to her daughter, Heather Heyer’s mother took to the podium at her funeral to deliver a powerful message to those who took her life.
Ms Heyer received a standing ovation for her powerful words that resonated with those who attended the funeral of Heather.
In the video she can be seen standing defiant against her daughters killers with one strong message:
Her mother, Susan Bro, told the crowd: “They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her.”
She urged those inside the Paramount Theatre in Charlottesville to speak up against injustice, in her name.
“This is not the end of Heather’s legacy,” she said.
“You have to find in your heart that spark of accountability. I don’t want you to turn away. I don’t care. You poke that finger at yourself and you make it happen. You take that extra step. You find a way to make a difference in the world.”
