Dennis Rucker with the Asian American Group of Las Vegas also took part.

"The awareness part is understanding that there are things out there and there are people out there that have those feelings that are not supportive of our communities and just making sure that people are supporting each other and when you see something, say something," Rucker said.

Currently, there are no reports of hate crimes against the Asian community in Southern Nevada.
