About 30 people gathered Monday evening outside the Mays Landing offices of U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-2nd, during a candlelight vigil for the victims of weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Organizer Amie Babischkin, co-chair of the Atlantic-Cape May County chapter of Action Together New Jersey, said the vigil ended about 7:30 p.m. due to rain.

The community group, which supports Democratic candidates, said it chose LoBiondo’s office because it has been a common meeting place, including for previous demonstrations against repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

The chapter said it plans other events to continue its message against hate and violence.
