32-year-old Heather Heyer attended the first ever Unite the Right event in Charlottesville, Virginia last August to counterprotest, when a vehicle, driven by a white supremacist, rammed into the crowd, injuring dozens and killing Heyer.

Hours before white nationalists were expected to begin their rally, hundreds of counter-protesters filled Lafayette Square and Freedom Plaza in Washington to offer their own message against racism and white supremacy.
