'Philly is Charlottesville' marchers stand united against racism

- Hundreds of people marched in Center City on Wednesday evening as part of the 'Philly is Charlottesville' rally. 

Scores from many races, religions and corners of life took part in the 'Philly Is Charlottesville' rally on North Broad around 7 p.m. From a rally to a march, the effort organized by the interfaith group POWER says the goal was to unmask racism around us after violent and deadly clashes with white nationalist groups in Charlottesville.

Hildegard Kent is from Germany and said President Trump blaming both white nationalists and counter protesters for the clashes in Charlottesville made her think of a different time.

"To me it seems like the same thing happened in Germany. People thought oh they're going to go away and before they turned around it was too late."

The peaceful protesters were standing up for equality, LBGTQ issues and matters.

SKYFOX captured the pavement pounding from the air as the congregation finished the journey at Arch Street United Methodist Church.
