Roanoke Mayor Sherman Lea and faith community leaders will host a peace and solidarity vigil Sunday in honor of those killed and injured during weekend demonstrations in Charlottesville, according to a Roanoke city press release.

About 50 people held a vigil across the river from Trump Tower Saturday night for a woman killed when a vehicle drove into a crowd of counter-protesters earlier in the day at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

A vehicle plowed into a crowd of people who were protesting what is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in a decade in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday afternoon. "It will also be an opportunity to affirm Roanoke's commitment to be an inclusive community and to stand united together". Memorial Bridge at the statue.
