Reminder: Unity Rally Planned on Lower East Side Tomorrow
We mentioned this more than a week ago, but here’s a reminder. Tomorrow afternoon, residents, community activists and elected officials are planning a Lower East Side Unity Rally. The “stop the violence” event was planned in the aftermath of the January 4 murder of 16-year old Raphael Ward on Columbia Street. The rally begins at 5:30 p.m. at Avenue D and 6th Street. Participants will march to Columbia and Delancey, near the location where Ward was shot and killed.
