ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Community activists rallied Saturday night in downtown Albany. The faith leaders hosted a rally at the Veterans amphitheater called Unity for Change.

Law Enforcement heads were also there to discuss national police brutality issues and race.  A few hundred people came out for the event.

The event was all about coming together.

"When we come together, we signify that we may be different, we may have our difference of opinion but we are a community committed to living in peace,” said Bishop Frederic Williams.

"White and black, Hispanic, Indians, people of color, Mexicans, you name it; it's time for us to come together,” said Bishop Victor L. Powell from Rhema World Cathedral.

We talked about important issues with these community leaders for a special Dialogue—Bridging the Divide. You can see the program Monday night at 7:30 on WALB.
