More than 100 people came out to the Interfaith Walk for Peace and Justice in downtown Hudson Friday evening.

HUDSON — The rain cleared and sun came out just in time for the more than 100 people to gather for a candlelight vigil in support of peace and justice.

The Interfaith Walk for Peace and Justice was planned through the combined effort of Rabbi Michael Ross of Temple Beth Shalom, the Rev. Charlotte Collins of Christ Church Episcopal, and the Rev. Dr. Peter Wiley of the First Congregational Church of Hudson. Candles, masks, hand sanitizer and copies of the prayers were available for those attending.

The crowd assembled on the Hudson Green, near the Clock Tower, then moved to each house of worship, where a prayer was given. 

In addition, protesters supporting Black Lives Matter could be seen on the corners of Route 303 and Main Street.
