Description

Community members in Juneau — at times the crowd swelled to 200 or more — attended Sunday’s “Stand in Solidarity with Charlottesville” rally at Marine Park. Leaders from the Alaska Native community, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon and Christian faiths, the Juneau Police Department, the City and Borough of Juneau, the University of Alaska Southeast and labor leaders all spoke at the rally.

Far from the epicenter of the attacks, Juneauites still felt its aftershocks.

“Let us remember that we do not stand for love, if we do not stand against hate,” said Alaska State Writer Laureate Ernestine Hayes during her remarks. “This is where I stand: I stand with Charlottesville. I stand against white supremacy.”
