Hundreds of people gathered at Firefighters Park in Great Neck on Sunday to condemn anti-Asian discrimination and call for solidarity during a “Unity & Love” rally.

New York City saw an increase from three hate crimes in 2019 to 28 hate crimes in 2020 – the biggest increase anywhere in the country.

Members of the Great Neck community also spoke during the rally, including local students and members of the GNCA.

Many parents brought their young children for the march, including Great Neck resident Jue Wang.

Tyler Chang, a junior at Great Neck North High School, said he thought the rally exemplified the power of feeling visible and showing solidarity.
