“A Candlelight Vigil for Unity” will be taking place on the Allen County Courthouse Green tonight at 7:30 pm.

According to the event’s Facebook page, the vigil is being held as an acknowledgement that hate and racism still exists in every community, and to also show solidarity for victims of hate in Charlottesville.

United Activists of Fort Wayne is hosting the event. The group encourages bringing a candle to light during a moment of silence, and says attendees can also bring bubbles and chalk. Speeches and singing will be taking place, as well.
