EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- In Eau Claire, community members gathered to remember those who lost their lives in Charlottesville.
Hundreds took part in a candlelight vigil in Phoenix Park Sunday evening.
Indivisible Chippewa Valley invited community members to show respect for the fallen, and those threatened by the hate shown Saturday.
Community organizers said it's important to stand together against hate in our own community.
"If we're silent, we allow some of this hatred to come through. It's really about speaking up and by holding events and being visible that we actually help to say 'that's not ok.' What we're seeing in Charlottesville, not only the hatred and the division but the violence is not ok," said Andrew Werthmann.
"JONAH" also known as Joining Our Neighbors, Advancing Hope was also a part of the community groups putting on the vigil.
