Passion and democracy took to the streets around 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Scores from many races, religions and corners of life took part in the 'Philly Is Charlottesville' rally on North Broad. From a rally to a march the effort organized by the interfaith group POWER says the goal is to unmask racism around us after violent and deadly clashes with white nationalist groups in Charlottesville.
Hildegard Kent is from Germany and says President Trump blaming both white nationalists and counter protesters for the clashes in Charlottesville makes her think of a different time.
"To me it seems like the same thing happened in Germany. People thought oh they're going to go away and before they turned around it was too late."
The peaceful protesters are standing up for equality, LBGTQ issues and matters.
