Vigil Held in Dallas For Victims of Charlottesville Attack

San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon released a statement Monday saying she was " deeply saddened and angered by this weekend's showing of rampant racism and violence in Charlottesville".

Hundreds of people gathered in front of the Monroe County courthouse Sunday night to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville, Va. and speak up against hate.

One person died after a vehicle plowed into a group of protesters at a white nationalist rally in Virginia on Saturday.

"Right now, the climate is nearly conducive for that and we must change the direction we're going", said S.C. Rep. Michael Rivers. "We can't let that happen". He told New Three, "We are the United States, supposedly, and it's not optional for us not to come together".

His wife Lynn said what happened in Charlottesville is disgraceful.

Those in attendance say they're supporting unity and love, and hope their voices are stronger than the hateful ones. "They learn from us loving them". Additionally, many who organized and participated in demonstrations blamed the Trump administration for emboldening the rising tide of fascism and white supremacist violence.

Charlottesville became the scene of violence on Saturday as groups of white nationalists clashed with other protesters over plans to remove a Confederate statue.

Almost 200 people gathered Sunday in Downtown Pittsburgh's Market Square to show solidarity for protesters killed and injured over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

Marchers also vowed to resist hate, bigotry and inequality.

Jane Shain of Hallowell came to promote peace and kindness.

"We will rally for a kind of protective space to make sure every American is treated with the respect and dignity that they're entitled to", Moiseyev said.
