CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WUSA9) - A 112-mile march against white supremacists began on Monday.
1,300 people are walking from Charlottesville, Virginia to D.C. It will take them ten days.
A white supremacist rally that ended in violence earlier this month prompted the march.
Demonstrators want President Trump to change his rhetoric and policies which they say promotes hates.
Protesters came from all over the country to participate in Monday's march.
Jeremy Ellis said, "I took two planes from the Midwest to be here today. I took off work. I learned about the march on Twitter and thought it was important to be here."
March organizers are making safety a priority especially since they're expecting to see counter protestors along the way.
The march ends in DC on Sept 6th. Visit their site to learn more: cville2dc.us/the-march.html
