WASHINGTON — The “Unite the Right 2” rally is descending upon D.C. Sunday, a year after white nationalists held a similar event in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which a counterprotester was killed.

The rally is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Lafayette Square.

Counterprotesters also have events planned for the day, including around Farragut Square and McPherson Square. They plan to march from Freedom Plaza to Lafayette Square.
