Scores from many races, religions and corners of life took part in the ‘Philly Is Charlottesville’ rally on North Broad around 7 p.m. From a rally to a march, the effort organized by the interfaith group POWER says the goal was to unmask racism around us after violent and deadly clashes with white nationalist groups in Charlottesville.
