"Only 15 days ago, my daughter was killed as she protested racism", Bro began. I miss her all the time. "Today, I am announcing the launch of the Heather Heyer foundation, a nonprofit organization that will provide scholarships to help more people join Heather's fight against hatred. She was always joined by people from every race and every background in this country", Bro said.

Susan was introduced by a descendent of Robert E. Lee who referred to racism as America's "original sin", and then spoke about the importance of standing up against it. Heyer was among the counter-protesters who showed up to oppose the march, and was killed when a white nationalist drove his vehicle into a crowd of people.

Making an emotional appearance on the VMAs, Bro wound up honoring all six of the nominees in the Best Fight Against the System category instead of just one victor, saying she was honored by the support she has been receiving in the wake of her personal tragedy, a tragedy that has touched people across the globe. The rally was organized by a group of white nationalists, KKK members and members of the alt-right.

Susan Bro announced that MTV all the nominees in its Best Fight Against the System award, which was created to reflect "the audience's passion and activism around social justice issues such as environmental justice, immigration, LGBTQ equality, and racial justice", an MTV spokesperson told People. I was a bit skeptical. "This is something that touches people everywhere, the idea that you can stand up and be counted, that you have it within you to be that hero, so I feel like I have an obligation to share that".

"I want to make her death count", Bro said.

We already have some advance news on what one of the more powerful moments during the 2017 MTV VMAs is going to be. Heyer died trying to take a stand for what is right, which is why Bro continues to fight so hard to honor her name with her foundation and her own attempts to bring about change.
