Hundreds march to promote unity and peace

More than 500 New Jersey residents of all ages marched from City Hall to Lincoln Park Sunday to promote unity and celebrate the first ever ?Solidarity Sunday.?

Inspired by recent violent events, like the string of shootings in Newark at the end of October, as well as the election of President-elect Barack Obama, community leaders and residents banded together to demand positive changes in New Jersey and in the United States.

Activists hope to bring attention to the lack of coordination between agencies and inspire them to work with each other and with residents more successfully.
