State Rep. Michael P. Sheehy (D-Oregon) today issued a statement in response to Saturday’s attack during a politically-charged protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. The attack killed one person and injured at least 19 others.

“My thoughts and prayers are with those injured and affected by the attack in Charlottesville over the weekend. We must face the hard truth that racial tensions in America still require significant time and effort to heal. I plan to join Toledo-area residents this evening for a march of solidarity to convey our community’s feelings toward those involved in the heinous actions in Charlottesville. All are welcome to participate and reflect on Saturday’s events in hopes that we can move forward together without hatred and violence.”

Tonight’s demonstration in Toledo will begin at 7 p.m. at the Maumee Branch Public Library at 501 River Rd., and will end at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 112 E. Wayne St.
