Over a hundred people showed up to a vigil and to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville in Boise.
They gathered at the Ann Frank Human Rights Memorial which was recently attacked with anti semitic and hate speech.

During the vigil, they lit candles and reflected on the recent events to condemn racism, hate, and bigotry. They sent a message to the hate groups in Idaho, that they're not welcomed here.

"This is not shocking to anyone if you are a person of color you are a person living with a dishabille are you a person who is gay or transgender. They are living with this fear and this constant threat all the time and it's incumbent on each and every one of us who are here tonight to confront that racism that systemic racism and to challenge it and change it to become the America we want it to be," said Adrienne Evans of United Vision for Idaho a co-organizer of the vigil.
