A candlelight vigil will take place Monday, Aug. 14 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at First Church Belmont, Unitarian Universalist on Concord Avenue across from Belmont Center that organizers are calling Belmont Stands in Solidarity with Charlottesville.

The campaigners are asking the Belmont community to stand together against the violence and hate that occurred over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia after clashes between white supremacists and members of the alt-right and counter protesters left three people – a counter protester and two Virginia State Police officers – dead.

This event is nonpartisan; all are welcome.
