MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, MICH. - More than 100 people rallied in Rowen Park Saturday, August 19th, 2017 to call for "Unity for Racial Understanding."
The rally was held in response to the tragedy at Charlottesville's white supremacist rally on August 12 and the multiple incidents of racial hatred that occurred in the Muskegon area last week.
"Most of us want to respond with some type of goodness to the hate that we see", said Tara Foreman, who passed out signs at a nearby event. The signs read, "Hate has no home here," and many were on display in Rowen Park.
