At this love rally, I met man whose name I do not know. At this love rally, I met this man who makes me wonder what love looks like for him. At this love rally, I met this man who wanted someone to show him a little bit of love, a little bit of kindness, as we all talked about love.

I'll be speaking at a rally to counter the hate emerging out of this year's Presidential Election Cycle. Please join if you can on Sunday, April 30, 2016 at 2PM in New York City, by New York University.
The official letter about the program is here.
As the co-founder of the Project for the Advancement of Our Common Humanity (PACH; pach.org), I am writing to let you know that PACH and 20 other NYC organizations are having a love rally in Washington Square Park on April 10th from 2-4. Please join us! We have over 35 world leaders, activists, interfaith leaders, youth groups, a gospel choir, musical groups, spoken word poets, and many others joining us to celebrate love for our common humanity. The rally is in response to the radical hate that is consuming our political conversations and our daily lives. We want to show the world, as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is doing, that there is another way to respond to hate and violence than simply more hate and violence. Join us as we come together as a community of New Yorkers to fight radical hate with radical love.
