SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane is standing up against hate and violence after the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.
On Monday, more than fifty people rallied for peace outside Spokane City Hall.
Sawyer Ralph and her friends organized the event in an effort to unify our community.
"What's happening in Charlottesville, what's happening across America with white supremacy and Nazi's isn't acceptable and it's not going to be taken lightly," said Ralph, who organized the rally.
The event was mostly peaceful, with the exception of one woman yelling at the group.
"Hatred will never accomplish anything that we need to love each other and support each other," said Leo Smith, who attended the rally.
The Spokane Human Rights Commission also attended the event. John Lemus, commission chair, said he will work hard to make sure Spokane is a compassionate community, where everyone is welcome.
