New Yorkers rally to say ‘Today I am a Muslim, too’

( CNN) New Yorkers by the thousand, representing myriad backgrounds and religions, converged on Times Square on Sunday, heeding a music mogul’s calls to let Muslims know their fellow Americans stood by them.

The demonstrators — many of them hoisting posters featuring a woman in an American flag hijab with the caption “we the people are greater than fear” — gathered at one of the world’s most well known public places to denounce what they see as menaces and pressure aimed at Muslim communities.

The rally, dubbed “Today I am a Muslim Too, “ was billed on social media as “a day of solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters in reaction to the vicious attacks by( President Donald Trump ). “
