Campaign aims to show that Charlottesville 'stands for love'

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A group of Charlottesville officials and business leaders are planning a publicity campaign designed to repair the city's image after this month's deadly white nationalist rally.

The Daily Progress reports the campaign will include ads and a social media hashtag aimed at spreading the message that Charlottesville "stands for love."

Susan Payne, of the Blue Ridge Group advertising agency, is on the campaign committee. Payne says the goal "is to take the bad images of Charlottesville we've all seen and replace them with good images in the newspapers."

She says many businesses are suffering as a result of the violent events that rocked the city on Aug. 12. A woman was killed when a car ran into a group of people protesting the rally. At least 19 others were injured during clashes.
