A Jericho March was held in Brooklyn today in light of the recent violence across the city.
Police officers, clergy and community members marched across the Brooklyn Bridge as one in a show of unity and solidarity.
A Jericho March's goal is to break down the walls of division between communities. This is the first Jericho March to be held since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
March organizers started with a prayer before heading to City Hall, calling on Mayor Eric Adams to provide more funding to faith-based organizations to help the youth.
