Photos: Hundreds gather for anti-hate rally in Princeton

Several hundred people filled Palmer Square on Sunday to condemn the violence and racism in Charlottesville, Va., and call for unity. The event, “We Stand with Charlottesville,” was sponsored by several community groups.

Another vigil will be held Tuesday, Aug. 15, at 7 p.m. at the Hopewell United Methodist Church. The church is located at 20 Blackwell Avenue in Hopewell. The vigil is being sponsored by the Hopewell Council of Churches.
