Lyft said Saturday that it was partnering with the Southern Poverty Law Center to "provide educational resources for drivers" to protect them from white nationalists.

"Lyft represents all people, including the 66 percent of drivers who identify as a minority — and every ride is an opportunity to bring people of different backgrounds together," the company, based in San Francisco, wrote in a message to drivers.

"With white supremacists planning rallies nationwide, we want to share an update on resources to keep drivers safe."

The message provided information on how drivers can report "incidents of hateful intimidation and harassment," telling them to watch for additional safety alerts from the company.

Uber also told drivers on Friday that it would continue banning white nationalists from its service in light of last weekend's violence in Charlottesville that killed one woman and injured 19 others.
