The event was one of six held in cities across the country.
It was meant to raise awareness about the thousands of people who have been subjected to anti-Asian hate and violence.
Action News anchor Nydia Han joined local and state lawmakers to speak out against racially-motivated hate.
"It is clear that hope and solidarity can emerge from heartbreak and pain, especially as we gather and stand up and speak out," Nydia said.
The #AsianJusticeRally is happening now and I am inspired by the diversity of those who’ve gathered in support — young and old… and people of all backgrounds ✊#stopAsianhate #asianjusticerally #breakthesilence #stopaapihate #thisisamerica #veryasian #philadelphia pic.twitter.com/tLJBcmNhMl— nydiahan (@nydia_han) January 30, 2022
In all six participating cities, a moment of silence was held at 2:30 p.m. in honor of the victims.
