(Worthy News) - A solidarity march against a spate of anti-Semitic attacks in New York City saw over 25,000 attendees Sunday, as New York governor Andrew Cuomo promised to commit another $45 million to fight the epidemic.
Protestors, energized by 13 baffling attacks by people from all walks of life against Jews over the Christmas season in the New York metropolitan area, marched across the Brooklyn Bridge and chanted "no hate, no fear."
"No way to adequately capture how massive this crowd is, but it's huge," city council member Mark D. Levine said on twitter.
The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino found that anti-Semitic hate crimes were on pace to reach an 18-year high in 2019 in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
