In August of 2017, white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups violently attacked a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. There were numerous injuries and one death. Since, armed protesters have invaded the Capitol building in Lansing and led an insurrection at the nation's Capitol. Tonight, State Representative Felicia Brabec of Ann Arbor will moderate a discussion put forth by Integrity First for America, a non-partisan, non-profit civil rights organization supporting a lawsuit by a group of Charlottesville residents.
