We belong here: Over a thousand march against anti-Asian hate in Flushing


The continuing, unabated rise in anti-Asian violence came to head on Sunday as over a thousand marched in Queens to protest the unprovoked attacks, which have been plaguing the city.

Beginning in Flushing, a who’s who of elected officials and renowned individuals gathered at 137-35 Northern Boulevard on the steps of the neighborhood’s town hall. Here hundreds watched as the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and many, many more rejected injustice to much applause and fanfare.
