May 8 Muslim Rally Capitol Ceasefire Gaza

On Wednesday, May 8, several hundred people gathered at the State Capitol at a rally organized by the local Muslim Community to support an ceasefire in Gaza. In this third segment about the rally, we hear several voices from the rally itself. We start off with Dr. Schabib Chekima, the emcee. We also hear from Imam Jamal Shah of the Schenectady Islamic Center; Albany County Legislator Mert Simpson; and All of Us Co Founders Sean Young and Jamaica Miles.
