Borough Hall to host Unity Rally Wednesday in response to rise in hate violence


In response to the ongoing rise in hate violence, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, elected officials and community leaders from across the spectrum of religion, race and ethnicity will gather as “One Queens” at Borough Hall Wednesday.

The Unity Rally, denouncing hate in all its forms against all communities represented in the borough — including hate toward Asian American, Jewish and Muslim neighbors, who have frequently been the target of bigotry and violence in recent months — will be held a day after the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd.
