KATONAH, N.Y. -- "America needs more colors, more choices, more brains," said one of the signs a participant carried in Sunday afternoon's A "Solidarity Walk" in Katonah.
It was organized to "celebrate the spirit of our communities," said a post on Facebook.
"We walk to show our support for community members who are in distress, to let them know that they are not alone and that we are here for them. We walk to reaffirm the characteristics of our community which we cherish most – kindness, diversity, inclusion and the freedom to live with safety and dignity. We walk because we are stronger together," said the notice.
Participants were given supplies at the event to make the signs. Another had the message, "Never give up." And "I'm an immigrant and I count," was a different message.
Those attending the event were asked to donate holiday food items and pajamas to the Community Center.
