Charlottesville vigil planned for Saturday night in Salisbury
SALISBURY — Two community organizations — Women for Community Justice and Salisbury Indivisible — will hold a vigil in honor of the woman who lost her life and those who were injured in the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests last weekend.
“Let this be a time of healing, mourning and lamenting the loss of lives in the battle for justice and equality,” a poster announcing the vigil reads.
The vigil will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Gateway Park at Innes and Depot streets.
People are encouraged to bring flashlights, tambourines, drums and signs that express “peace, love and unity.”
