Diversity rally set for Saturday in Niagara Falls

A public rally to celebrate diversity will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday in Niagara Falls State Park. The rally follows in the wake of the recent violent protest in Charlottesville, Va.

Organizer Nicholas D'Angelo said the rally will be held just inside the park entrance at Old Falls and Prospect streets.

D'Angelo is active in the Niagara County Democratic Party, but he called the event nonpartisan.

"We have every single candidate for City Council," he said.

Mayor Paul A. Dyster won't be able to attend, but he made his own anti-bigotry statement last week at the same location, D'Angelo said.

He said the theme is, "No matter where you are from, we're glad you are our neighbor."
