    White supremacist and neo-Nazi protestors in Charlottesville, VA

    Local progressive groups have scheduled two events—one this evening and one tomorrow—related to the white supremacist riot in Charlottesville, VA last weekend.

    A candelight vigil from 5:30–7 p.m. today at the Arch is billed as both in solidary with Charlottesville and a call to action to defend undocumented immigrants and oppose the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

    Wednesday at 6 p.m., the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement will host a "community conversation" about Charlottesville—including, specifically, whether Athens' Confederate memorial on Broad Street should remain standing.
