NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A group of Asian and Black clergy leaders came together Tuesday for a rally to “Stand Against Asian Hate.”

“We’re gathered here, as these speakers have shared, to condemn hate … and to connect, to find new friends and colleagues, bound together for our common good,” one speaker said.

The rally was held in Queens at the First Presbyterian Church of Jamaica.
