A prayer vigil and a teach-in, as well as some business closings, are being planned in response to a demonstration on the County Courthouse lawn on Saturday.
The Unity Group will announce plans for a community prayer vigil and teach-in on Thursday at 10 a.m. at Eastdale Village United Methodist Church, 1408 Tunnel Blvd.
Officials said, "This action is in response to concerns about the national Socialist Movement activities taking place this weekend. Local clergy leaders will join community organizers in an effort to forge strategic plans the needs of our residents.
"The teach-in and interfaith prayer vigil allows us a chance to redirect attention from subversive hate-mongers and to focus on the issues that we are confronting in our communities on a daily basis."
Earlier, Terri Johnson started an initiative, calling on businesses to close their doors during the Neo Nazi anti immigration protest.
Ms. Johnson said she wants to make a statement by closing during this time, stating she "does not believe Chattanooga taxpayers should be funding protection for hate groups."
Sluggos North will be among businesses closed on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
