(AP) — A day after a white supremacist rally spiraled into deadly violence in Virginia, protesters plan to converge in front of Trump Tower in New York and elsewhere around the country to decry hatred and racism.

Activists have planned gatherings Sunday that range from a march in Manhattan to a candlelight vigil in Florida to a rally in a public square in Cleveland. In West Virginia, residents are planning to go to a Confederate statue on the state Capitol grounds and call for its removal.

In South Carolina, live video from The Greenville News showed dozens of people gathered at an afternoon rally. Organizer Todd May, a Clemson University professor, says the gathering aimed to show support for people targeted by white supremacist rhetoric.
