ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany spiritual leaders are inviting everyone to attend a rally Saturday night to bring the community together.

On Friday, some of the spiritual leaders joined top Albany law enforcement officials for a round table discussion.

The faith leaders will host a rally called Unity for Change.

Law enforcement heads will also be there to discuss national police brutality issues and race. 

"How we can make a greater impact in Albany Dougherty County. So we have a lot of good issues here, on how to bring our city together.  And we really want everybody to come out," said Bishop Frederic Williams.

The community rally is Saturday at 7 p.m. at Veterans Park Amphitheater across from the Albany Civic Center.
