Religious leaders are plotting an event of their own in response to a Klan Rally expected next month in Charlottesville, Virginia, local media reported Friday.
The Charlottesville Clergy Collective, a group of more than 50 local religious leaders, met this week in order to begin scheduling an event in advance of a Ku Klux Klan demonstration scheduled for July 8 in downtown Charlottesville, WVIR-TV reported Friday.
“This is just in the talking phase right now about having something that stresses peace, and listening, and dialogue, and depolarization, and taking the tension away from that issue. We want to emphasize the goodness here in Charlottesville,” Pastor Liz Emery of New Beginnings Christian Community told the NBC affiliate.
The Loyal White Knights of the KKK, a North Carolina-based Klan affiliate, recently announced plans to assemble outside Charlottesville Circuit Court on July 8 to protest against the City Council’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee.
“They are trying to erase whites and our great culture right out of the history books,” the group wrote on its website.
