Polk County Democrats join candlelight vigil for victims of Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia

Brandon Nuckols planned the Lakeland vigil along with other members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Lakeland. Nuckols and others from the congregation wore yellow T-shirts bearing the statement, “Standing on the side of love.” Nuckols, 42, said he had heard about vigils being planned in Tampa and Orlando, and wanted to make sure such an event took place in his adopted home of Lakeland. The vigil in Central Park in Winter Haven was sponsored by United for Action.

About 50 people attended the vigil in Winter Haven, said Katherine Sutherland, the organizer.
Sutherland is part of United for Action, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization. She said two other groups, East Polk Indivisible and the Solavita Women’s Action Network, also joined the vigil in Central Park. “ I think it was very meaningful and that it really helped the people who were there express their feelings about a significant event that happened in our nation,” Sutherland said. “ We came together to speak out against hate and violence and to speak in favor of love and working together.”
