The gathering set for Saturday at 2 p.m., is part of a “Unity Against Hate” rally to show compassion and solidarity in wake of the rising hate incidents against Asian Americans and other minority groups, according to a release from the APAPA.

Jackie Tang, who organized the Cleveland event said, “My friends and I would rather walk in a park in the beautiful spring than organize rallies and marches, but we have to do it to stop the spread of hate and to prevent more people from getting hurt.”
