Dayton Ohio Ku Klux Klan Rally Highly Out Numbered
By Sentinel News Wire
Published May 25, 2019

The Ku Klux Klan rally planned today in Dayton, Ohio drew less than a dozen Ku Klux Klan members. The racist group was penned in by fencing, surrounded by police and drowned out by hundreds of counter- protesters.

The city of Dayton blocked streets with large trucks Saturday and brought in officers from other jurisdictions to keep protesters separated from members of an obscure Klan group called the Honorable Sacred Knights.

The group obtained a permit for the rally months ago. City officials and community leaders organized an effort called Dayton United Against Hate.

The NAACP and other groups gathered in a public park about a mile from Dayton’s downtown square where the Klan rally was held.

The city urged people to stay away from downtown Saturday.
