Candlelight vigil planned in Raleigh for Charlottesville victims

Hayes said she believes the political climate in the United States is contributing to the apparent upswing in right-wing extremism like the rally in Charlottesville last weekend, but she also thinks it's a response to a changing society.

A vigil was also held in Charlottesville at the location where Heyer was killed, and in a number of other US cities. People in the crowd chanted, "when the KKK comes around, there is no middle ground", "they say "Jim Crow", we say 'hell no!', and "black lives matter!" Wherever you are in the world, we'd like you to share your pictures, videos and stories.

As law enforcement officers worked to restore order in the city, a Virgina State Police helicopter crashed killing troopers Lt. Jay Cullen, 48, of Midlothian, Va. and Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates, 40, of Quinton, Va.

Mark Tinkleman, of the group Refuse Fascism, said he was in Charlottesville on Saturday marching against the white nationalist gathering and witnessed the deadly vehicle crash. "Commit more time, commit more energy", one speaker said.

Hundreds of people attended a vigil in solidarity with Charlottesville at the Monroe County courthouse Sunday.

"It's important to me to teach our children the voices of peace are stronger than the voices of hate", Bessey said.

City leaders say it's crucial for residents and visitors to learn about the city's history so they won't repeat it.

Southeast Texans from Vidor, Orange, Beaumont, and Spurger brought signs to spread the message of unity. We must take a stand against those who reject American values: "e Pluribus Unum; out of many, one".

The statement goes on: "UE stands with the people of Charlottesville and all of their allies who marched against the bigots and bravely stood up to hatred, racism, and violence. And if you like the police and don't like what I'm saying, then you can leave, too". That is exactly what this is: "white terrorism", said Mrinalini Chakraborty, head of field operations for the Women's March Network, who helped organize the vigil.
