LEWISBURG -- Hundreds of students gathered on Bucknell University’s campus for a show of solidarity Tuesday night.
Students marched from the campus to Hufnagle Park in Lewisburg where music was played, several speakers were heard, and poetry was read.
The Solidarity Rally was organized 18 years ago after two Bucknell students were murdered. They were apparent victims of hate crimes.
Organizers tell us the goal of the rally is to comfort and support grieving communities dealing with violence, while also shedding light on good things happening in the world.
"We're just going to inspire people to look at the light inside of them, and see it in each other, basically that's it," said Cynthia Peltier, event organizer.
More than 850 students turned out for the solidarity rally.
