Marching Against Hate in Bemidji

Memorial for Heather Heyer who died protesting racism

Americans across the country have been organizing and marching in protest of this past weekend's violent, hate-fueled and deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA.  Today at 5pm, people in Bemidji will gather and march in solidarity against fascism.   We spoke with Unite Against Hate co-organizer Dan Gannon on the morning show today about the march, how discriminatory issues affect the community and what people can do to inspire tolerance.
