*On Monday a number of social justice groups will being a 10-day March from Charlottesville to Washington, D.C. The march is a rebuttal to the totally inadequate response from president Donald Trump on the violence that took place in Charlottesville earlier this month. The incident ignited when those against the removal of a confederate statue created havoc and afterwards, Trump blamed “many sides” and not once held the white supremacists/KKK instigators accountable.
Dubbed “The March to Confront White Supremacy,” the event was organized by groups including The Movement for Black Lives, the Women’s March, and Democracy Spring.
According to The Hill, the official website for the March describes the event in a statement.
“We are marching from Charlottesville to Washington, D.C. to demonstrate our commitment to confronting White supremacy wherever it is found. This is the time for us to stand up for justice and equality. This is the time to confront White supremacy in our government and throughout our history. We demand that President Trump be removed from office for allying himself with this ideology of hate and we demand an agenda that repairs the damage it’s done to our country and its people.”
NBC News Washington reported that the demonstrators will walk a total of 17 miles per day, making stops at churches along the way.
