ProKzoo and other groups are collaborating to stand in solidarity against the violence on Saturday in Charlottesville, Va.

The event, "Stop The Hate: Kzoo Stands in Solidarity with Charlottesville," will be held today at 2:30 p.m. at Bronson Park's east end.

A number of speakers will attend the march, including Rep. Jon Hoadley and Com. Shannon Sykes Nehring of Kalamazoo.

“The Alt-Right is a white supremacist organization," said Jen Judd, co-founder and board chair of ProKzoo, in a release. "We need to call them what they are, they are filled with racist ideologies and have displayed openly that they align with Nazi rhetoric. [ ... ] We have to stand up against these beliefs and the violence that has always permeated white supremacist and Neo-Nazi groups. Kalamazoo is a welcoming inclusive community; white supremacy doesn’t belong here nor anywhere else in America.”

This is the second protest in Kalamazoo in as many says. Newschannel 3 was on scene for last night's protest.
