After the events of last week in Dallas, Baton Rouge and Minnesota, the City of Allentown is coming together to support our police and stand-up for communities of color.
An Interfaith & Multicultural Rally will be held outside Allentown City Hall at 6 o’clock tonight.
Mayor Ed Pawlowski has called community leaders together asking that they join in being a visible force in our community for non-violence.
