These are strange times, wouldn't you say? How we react individually and as a community to the new political reality will define all of us and this country for decades to come.
On Thursday evening, Yemeni deli and bodega owners are closing their businesses between 12 pm to 8 pm in support of the members of their community who have been stranded at airports or overseas.
They will also be holding a rally at Brooklyn Borough Hall later today from 4:30 pm to 7 pm.
There is one thing that unifies us all: we are all immigrants and/or decedents of immigrants here in Brooklyn. This borough is stronger and unique because of our differences and of our tolerance towards other cultures.
So let us show solidarity by joining them today. #myyemenineighbor
Below are a few photos taken at the rally by reader Richard Weisfeld. Thanks for allowing me to post them, Richard!
