Standing Up

‘Take Back The Night’ Rally Planned In Response To Recent Hate Crimes


In response to the recent violent anti-gay attacks, Queer Rising, a grass roots organization focused on creating full equality for queer people through nonviolent action, is hosting a ‘Take Back The Night’ rally this Thursday. The group will stand outside Madison Square Garden where the two incidents took place.

The event is meant to be a nonviolent response to the attacks as well as an opportunity to raise awareness for all hate crimes. The rally will be followed by a march through Chelsea along 8th Avenue.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP to the event on Facebook.
