The scene on Palmer Square Saturday night, where people gathered to condemn the racism and bigotry on display in Charlottesville, Va. They also remembered the victims of the violence there.

The event, “We Stand with Charlottesville,” is open to the public. Anyone who wants to peacefully and stand against hate is welcome to participate.

Several people gathered on Palmer Square Saturday night for a vigil against white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, bigotry and violence.
