With hate crimes rising throughout New York City, a Bushwick bagel shop held a market Saturday with the hope of bringing the community together against the attacks.
The owners of Black Seed Bagels in Bushwick organized the event, which featured an array of offerings, like pastries, ice cream, coffee and entertainment.
Half of the proceeds will be going to the organization Stop Asian Hate, and the other half will be going to Heart of Dinner, which provides meals mainly for the elderly in Chinatown.
The organizers say they realize that money is not the answer to ending hate, but it is a way for the organizations that they are donating to, to continue to educate the world to stop hate.
