CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston City Council unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday night opposing “any groups and individuals who seek to divide our community and incite hatred.”

The resolution includes condemning white nationalism, white supremacy, neo-Nazism, and any other groups or individuals who divide the community.

Council member Robert Mitchell says he initially proposed this resolution in response to controversy involving fellow council member Harry Griffin, whose photo appeared in a flyer for a rally involving the Charleston Tea Party and the Proud Boys last month.

The resolution also calls on state lawmakers “to immediately enact a hate crimes law for the State of South Carolina.”
