'Walk Against Hate' draws hundreds

Posted at 5:28 PM, Apr 30, 2017

The Anti-Defamation League hosted its first "Walk Against Hate" in Las Vegas drawing hundreds of people. 

More than 800 people gathered at Springs Preserve Sunday to walk in solidarity with those who've faced prejudice and discrimination. 

"There's everybody from different races and walks of life and we're all here together to walk against hate," said Binie Harlig who attended the walk with her family. 

It's the first time the Anti-Defamation League has held a walk like this in Las Vegas.

Just a few months ago, threats were called into the Jewish Community Center of Southern Nevada. There have also been multiple recent cases of hate-filled vandalism in the Las Vegas valley. 

"In terms of the hate in general, we feel that is extremely important to all stand together, people of all faiths," said Rabbi Pamela Frydman.

13 Action News was one of the sponsors of this event. Tricia Kean served as the master of ceremonies.
