Community members from across the spectrum joined together on Sunday, August 20 for a celebration of unity, a response to the recent events in Charlottesville, and a pledge with local public officials to work together toward justice in the community at large. Civic leaders attending included San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia, SJ Mayor Sam Liccardo, San Jose City Council members Chappie Jones and Lan Diep, Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese, and US Representative Zoe Lofgren.
The event was hosted at Evergreen Baptist Church on the east side of San Jose.
