- Story Text: Anti-white supremacy activists held a march for tolerance in Washington on Wednesday (September 6).
The activists braved a rainy day on Washington and marched over the Key Bridge, which connects Arlington, Virginia and Washington.
The march on Washington comes in the wake of an August rally in Charlottesville, Virginia organized by white nationalists that turned deadly when counter-protester Heather Heyer, 32, was killed by a car driven into a crowd.
The violence stemmed from a heated national debate about whether Confederate symbols of the U.S. Civil War represent heritage or hate. In the wake of the rally, other cities have acted to taken down monuments to the Confederacy.
