Dozens came together Wednesday night in Brentwood to call for peace and tolerance across the country amid recent mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.
Some Latinos on Long Island say they’re worried that they too could be targets.
The concern comes after police in El Paso say they found anti-immigrant documents containing white nationalist and racist views among the suspected shooter’s belongings.
"We can't continue to allow racism, micro-aggressions, hate from friends as jokes on social media,” says Dulce Rojas, of Sepa Mujer. “This is what led to what happened this weekend."
Many of the attendees took the opportunity to call for tougher gun laws.
