We are coming together because we are needed.

We are coming together because we will not accept what happened in Charlottesville, VA this weekend as the "new normal".

We are coming together to support and honor our comrades in Cville who bravely stood up to Nazis, Fascists and Klansmen--even at the cost of their lives.

We come together to show that we will not be silent or cowed by so-called "Alt-Right" terrorists.

Please come and bring a candle or a flashlight. Sunset is is around 8pm on Sunday, so let us light up the night sky in front of City Hall to show our resolve and our unity.

No permits. Just come.

On August 12, a fascist murdered one person and injured dozens more by driving a vehicle into a crowd of anti-racist protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia. Fascists had been calling for violence in advance; they made it very clear that this would happen. We are calling for solidarity actions to take place around the country in response—to support the bereaved, to encourage those who courageously stood up to fascist murderers, to reach out to our communities about this situation, and to show that we will not stand for this. Here, you can find a list of solidarity demonstrations and a PDF of a flier you can print and distribute to inform others about this situation.
