Confronting Racism in Tucson After Charlottesville

Tucson Responds to Intolerance, White Supremacy, and Violence

A look at Tucson’s response to the events in Charlottesville, Virginia - August 2017.

Events in Charlottesville, Virginia, have been front and center in the national news, and Tucson had a response of its own.

Protests in Charlottesville that turned violent were followed by outrage over President Trump’s tepid repudiation of white supremacy and Nazism. The events of last weekend have resonated across the country and the world.

To look at Tucson’s response to the events Metro Week sits down with one of the speakers from last weekend’s march, Reverend Owen Chandler, and the YWCA’s Liane Hernandez.

Metro Week airs Fridays at 6:30pm on PBS 6.
