“My hope and prayers are that there will be a domino effect, that people will pick up on this type of protest, and express the disapproval that they have of the violence and the hatred going on in the world today,” said organizer Brittany Gillis.

Gillis says the recent string of violent incidents in Hudson proves that their city is no different than any other experiencing violence throughout the country.
