Rally: Still Here, Still Strong: Rally at Freedom Plaza
Time: 12:00 – 3:00pm
Location: Freedom Plaza, 14th & Pennsylvania, NW
One year after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, white nationalists are bringing the same hate to DC. Countering that message, a rally in Freedom Plaza from 12:00 – 3:00pm will celebrate the resilience and resistance of marginalized communities. An All Souls Unitarian member who was injured in Charlottesville will speak at the rally.
The rally is planned to be a positive and nonconfrontational event. With safety in mind, Still Here, Still Strong is scheduled to end before the white nationalists are expected to be in the streets. A safety plan is advised for those who wish to re-assemble at Lafayette Square after the Still Here, Still Strong rally to more directly counter the white nationalists who will be demonstrating there.
