Protests erupted across the U.S. after a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia, escalated into violence on Saturday. The “Unite the Right” march drew hundreds of white nationalists and resulted in dozens of injuries as khaki-clad neo-Nazis clashed with protesters. The rally turned deadly when a car allegedly driven by a neo-Nazi protester killed a 32-year-old woman.

Events protesting the “Unite the Right” march were held in Washington, Memphis, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, and several other cities.

Solidarity rallies to condemn the violence formed in cities around the country, including Seattle, Atlanta, Memphis, and New York.
