The Stop Asian Hate Rally held at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge attracted hundreds of people to send a message that Suffolk County is no place for hate.

 

“The message was loud and clear,” read a post on the Suffolk County Police Department Facebook page regarding the event.

 

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Suffolk County Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart were among the attendees that included community organizations, elected officials, members of the Suffolk County Police Department and residents. The officials were among the speakers that addressed the crowd to convey the importance of solidarity with the Asian American communities.
