People of faith gather to “stand as one”

A cool breeze danced through a crowd of about 150 people as the sun set in Birmingham tonight. People of many faiths gathered to stand in solidarity with those in Charlottesville, Va., a city that was recently descended upon by throngs of violent alt-right groups and ended with many injuries and one death.

The evening in Birmingham began with a series of multifaith prayers and then ended with a rally around the spouting fountain at Linn Park. Men, women and children of many ethnicities, ages and backgrounds shouted as one:

Tell me what democracy looks like?

THIS is what democracy looks like.

Tell me what America looks like?

THIS is what America looks like.
