BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - About 100 people gathered in Burlington for a rally against racism following reports that Ku Klux Klan fliers were left on the doors of at least two Burlington residents’ homes, including that of a Black Lives Matter activist.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1OfqyZs ) that Police Chief Brandon del Pozo said he had not determined if a crime was committed but said his department is investigating.

Twenty-four-year-old Jocelyn Harvey said it seemed like a really bad joke when she received the flier in her apartment mailbox on Thursday but later determined that it was a targeted act because she is black.

James Haslam, executive director of nonprofit Rights and Democracy, who organized the gathering, called the fliers “a disturbing act of hate.”


The story corrects the spelling of Ku Klux Klan.
