New Yorkers gathered in Times Square on Sunday in a show of solidarity with the city’s Muslim community.

The Today, I Am A Muslim Too rally took over the Crossroads of the World was led by speakers including hip-hop pioneer Russell Simmons, Rabbi Marc Schneier and Imam Shamsi Ali.

Organizers said the event was planned in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order barring travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days.
