NOW: Hundreds gather in downtown Milwaukee to protest white supremacy

NEXT:

The scene was peaceful in downtown Milwaukee as hundreds gathered to rally against racism and white supremacy Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds gathered near O'Donnell Park with a simple message: "racism will not be tolerated in our country."

Chris Krasovich of Pewaukee was in attendance Saturday afternoon.

“The message of white supremacy, the message of racism, and hatred, and anti-Semitism has no place here," Krasovich said.

Today's event was exactly one week after the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia where a man plowed his car into a crowd of activists counter-protesting a conservative rally.

An estimated 500 people gathered at today's event in Milwaukee.
