Community Solidarity March: No Hate. No Fear.
On Sunday, 1/5 at 11 am, there will be a Solidarity March organized by UJA in partnership with other community organizations. More information can be found here.
In light of the ongoing and persistent attacks against our community, it's time for us to come together and demonstrate our collective resolve.
To that end, together with JCRC-NY as well as ADL-NY, AJC-NY, and the NY Board of Rabbis, we're organizing a solidarity march this coming Sunday, January 5th, under the banner "No Hate. No Fear." We will be calling on New Yorkers of all backgrounds to join us.
Please gather at 11 am at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan for a march across the Brooklyn Bridge, followed by a rally in Columbus Park (near Cadman Plaza).
