Large groups of counterprotesters rallied in the nation's capital on Sunday ahead of a white nationalist rally marking the anniversary of clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one person dead and elevated racial tensions in America.

On Saturday, Trump wrote on Twitter that the "riots" in Charlottesville "resulted in senseless death and division".

"Out of this frightful tragedy, we've seen a community that was able to come together to say this is not who we are".

"He's calling for unity among all Americans and he denounced all forms of bigotry and acts of violence and racism", Conway said on ABC's "This Week". Among them was Courtney Commander, a friend of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old who was killed when a vehicle plowed into a crowd of people protesting the white nationalists.

Reflecting on the "Unite the Right" rally one year ago, Bro said on "AC360", "Those of us who weren't paying attention, sadly, that was a big shock".

United States Senators Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) released statements to mark the one-year anniversary of the deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville on August 11-12, 2017 that claimed the lives of 32-year-old Heather Heyer and Virginia State Police Troopers Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, III and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates.

In addition, two police officers died in a helicopter crash while they were monitoring the protests.

Last year, 22-year-old Clara Carlson faced down the group of white supremacists who marched through campus, surrounding her and a group of friends.

A year ago, countless people were injured protesting white supremacy and Neo-Naziism in Charlottesville and and one person, Heather Heyer, was killed.

Then, hundreds of white nationalists and even more counter protesters will demonstrate near the White House Sunday.

It is not clear how many people will show up for "Unite the Right 2", which bills itself as a "white civil rights" protest, but its official permit estimates the event will have 100 to 400 participants.

President Donald Trump sent out a message prior to the rally on Saturday morning, condemning all racism and violence.

"With their Nazi flags and their Confederate flags and their rifled militias, it was something I never thought I'd see in Charlottesville", Spaar said.

The goal of the Unite the Right rally is to protest the civil rights abuses of groups on the right, as was last year's rally where a 20-year-old black man was brutally beat and Heather Heyer killed. This year they come w/ badges" and chanted "Why are you in riot gear? "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

Activists unfurled a banner that read, "Last year they came w/ torches".

On Saturday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to denounce the deadly protests that took place in Charlottesville past year.

Kessler had sought a permit from the city of Charlottesville to hold an event commemorating the "Unite the Right" rally this weekend, but withdrew his request in a federal court hearing late last month, according to city officials.

With Charlottesville police widely criticized for their handling of last year's rally, D.C. authorities are vowing to prevent violence.
