A local resident has planned a peaceful demonstration for Tuesday evening in Denton after reports surfaced showing members of a white nationalist organization protesting outside a bar and an assault against a bartender at another business in Denton.

The “Hate Has No Home in Denton County” demonstration is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Courthouse on the Square in downtown Denton, according to an event post circulating on Facebook.

“Members of the public are welcome to share their personal experiences about hate and its effects on people, families, education, work, tourism, and business in Denton and Denton County as well as positive actions that people can take to help protect others against hate and to help stop hate from having a home,” Catherine Giles wrote in an email about the demonstration.
