LES Unity Rally

Last night a peaceful LES rally was held on Columbia St where almost 1 month ago, 16-year old Raphael Sadonte Ward was gunned down for his jacket. Many residents from the community as well as city elected officials assembled on Avenue D & 6th St and proceeded to march down to Columbia and Rivington Street near the location where Ward was murdered.

Here are some scenes from the rally..
