Citizens in Knox County will gather in Gambier tomorrow, Sunday, August 13, at 3pm, along Middle Path in the center of town to express their support of Charlottesville’s fight against white supremacy. The vigil is in response to today’s disturbing violence in Charlottesville, VA, perpetrated by “Alt-Right” groups that openly identify as white supremacists, nationalists, and Neo-Nazis.
The event is inspired by Indivisible groups nationwide—along with activists at Women’s March, Democracy for America, Working Families Party, Resist Here, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Mi Familia Vota, OurRevolution, Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, People’s Action, Courage Campaign, Greenpeace, #AllOfUs, #Resist, 350.org, OFA, United We Dream, Win Without War, Voto Latino, MoveOn.org, Sierra Club, Pantsuit Nation and others—who are coming together “in solidarity with our brave friends in Charlottesville who put themselves at risk to fight against white supremacy.”
Members of GibbsWatch and Knox County Citizen Action Network are among the local groups participating. All citizens who support civil rights and disavow racism are urged to join in this demonstration of solidarity.
