Content Description

This addition to MSS 16386, The University of Virginia Collection on the Events in Charlottesville, VA, August 11-13, 2017, is composed of a single flyer promoting a University of Virginia student-sponsored protest against the University Administration and the Charlottesville Police Department. The flyer claims the creation of a "police state" by the "University's desire to control images." This "Rally for Justice" event took place in 2018, the year following the events of the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville. The protest effort attracted over 200 students and community members who congregated in defiance of the white supremacist messages perpetuated the previous summer.
