Rally to address anti-Asian hate held Saturday in Denver

After an increased amount of hate and violence against the AAPI community, the rally was organized to stand in solidarity against Asian hate.

DENVER — A rally against Asian hate took place Saturday on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol.

The Stop AAPI Hate rally was scheduled to go from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., according to a Facebook event hosted by the organization Community Organizing for Radical Empathy, or CORE.

The rally was billed as an event with music, poetry, words of inspiration and healing. Speakers and performers from varying backgrounds made appearances, and a mental health table was available for those seeking support.

CORE says on their website that they offer inclusive, accessible and engaging services for communities.
