    KKK Posters Left at Homes, Prompting Anti-Racism Rally in Burlington, Vermont
    WPTZ

    About 100 people gathered in Burlington, Vermont, 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 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."
