Nearly 300 people participated in a 'unity rally' in Massaro Park in Elmsford Sunday.

Organizers of the event say they are calling for an end to racism and police brutality through peaceful protest.
Lydia Adegbola, of Elmsford, said she thought it was important that her children took part in the rally.
"We thought it was very important to be a part of the movement, for them to understand there's injustice in this world and that they, even at a very young age can be a part of the solution to the injustice in the world," she said
State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins gave her support behind the nonviolent movement for social change.
"The system must change, the system must change, the system must change! And it only changes when people of good will and consciousness say enough is enough!" Stewart-Cousins said at the rally.
A paper listing the names of victims of racial violence was handed out at the event.

Organizers of the rally say the victims should be remembered with unity, not violence.
