Two local advocacy groups announced a "Rally in Solidarity with Charlottesville" that was held Sunday night in Washington Square Park.

The rally, co-hosted by Indivisible Rochester and Action Together Rochester, is meant to "protest the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, created by hate groups and domestic terrorists who have pushed their hateful message of white supremacy, fascism, anti-semitism, and bigotry," according to the event's Facebook page.
