Faith leaders gathered Sunday in Manhattan to address the hatred and intolerance they said prompted violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Religious leaders representing Christianity, Islam, and Judaism met at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.
"I believe, more than at any other time we need to be united against bigotry, and racism, anti-Semitism," Rev. Calvin O. Butts said to those gathered. "I believe that now, more than ever, we need to save our nation. Our nation is in danger, and that danger emanates from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."
Worshippers prayed for peace and spiritual healing in the country.
Some of those in attendance who lived during the 1960s said the recent events are bringing back memories of the Civil Rights Movement.
