Protesters in the March to Confront White Supremacy are set to conclude their 10-day, 118-mile journey from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

About 800 people are expected to march the final 10 miles from Fairfax, Virginia, into Washington, organizers said.

Charlottesville2DC marchers are expected to arrive at Gateway Park in Arlington, Virginia, at 3 p.m. They will then cross the Key Bridge and head to the Martin Luther King Memorial on the National Mall for a 4 p.m. rally.

The march, organized by a group of "multi-racial, multi-issue and multi-faith organizations and alliances," began on Monday, Aug. 28, in Charlottesville "as a direct response to the local community's and the nation's refusal to accept President Trump's failure to consistently condemn white supremacy and hatred."

Some marchers told our affiliate WJLA they are also protesting the Trump administration's announcement on Tuesday that it would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
