An anti-racism rally was held on August 14 in Maumee, Ohio, the town where a man suspected of driving his car into a crowd of people in Charlottesville, Virginia, had been living. Local media reported that the rally started at the Maumee Public Library and ended at St Paul’s Lutheran Church, where people spoke on Charlottesville and other national events. Organizers said they wanted to stand in solidarity with counter-protesters in Virginia and to denounce all forms of racism. James Alex Fields Jr. has been charged with second-degree murder and other counts after authorities say he drove his car into a crowd during a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others.
