Columbia Stands with Charlottesville – Monday, August 14, 2017 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at South Carolina State House, 1100 Gervais Street, Columbia, South Carolina 29201. This weekend, hate groups and domestic terrorists of all stripes went to Charlottesville, VA to push their hateful message of white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry. When they got there they waged violence on unarmed anti-racists, killing Heather Heyer and injuring many others. We mourn for the lives that were lost, and we will honor all those under attack by congregating against hate in our own communities.
We are standing nonviolently in solidarity with Charlottesville. Join us.
