Queens Stands Together Rally Photos
Hundreds of people gathered at MacDonald Park in Forest Hills on Sunday to stand against the national rhetoric targeting various groups.
“To our neighbors living in fear, we stand with you today, we will protect you tomorrow and we will protect you forever,” said Ethan Felder, one of the organizers of the Queens Stands Together Rally.
The labor lawyer and Community Board 6 member called the rally a duty of civic engagement and involvement. He organized the event with local activists Edwin Wong, Peter Beadle, Prameet Kumar, Mark Laster, Mohammed Naeem, Alexa Weitzman and Mazeda Uddin.
After sharing the story of her own family’s escape to America from Poland, Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz said that she wakes up every morning thinking she has had a bad dream.
“My message to Donald Trump is you are not my president and you will never be my president,” Koslowitz said. “It has nothing to do with Democrats and Republicans, this president is not fit to be our president.”
