A group of about 200 people gathered in Public Square Sunday evening to stand in solidarity with the counter-protesters and victims in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This event was hosted by Action Together Lakewood Area, Indivisible CLE and the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus.
It was organized as a stand against hate and violence. Participants were asked to stay peaceful and refrain from profanity on signs – which they did.
People told Channel 3 they wanted to do something in public, rather than just talk about what happened. They wanted to spread messages of love, diversity, peace and inclusion.
