According to the city government's Facebook page, the vigil will be a "time to remember and pray for those who were injured and killed at the rally in Charlottesville.and for healing in that community".

"This is a serious loss for us". "It could have been one of us".

The group had candles and talked about standing up against the violence across the country.

Following the incidents in Charlottesville, President Donald Trump initially tweeted a call for unity, to "condemn all that hate stands for".

Yesenia Padilla helped organize the vigil. Participant Claire Douglas said a member of her group was also injured when James Alex Fields, Jr. slammed his vehicle into the crowd in Charlottesville. "I think this kind of demonstration makes people think like I should just stay home, and I think ... that what we ... absolutely need to do is to be bigger than them, be more organized than them and show them we are the majority".

Organizers say they won't be intimidated by hate groups and will mourn peacefully and safely.

The vigil remained peaceful.
