Members of minority communities in eastern Long Island will gather this weekend to protest injustices that they say put them a step behind others.

They will host what they call a “Walk for Interdependence.” They plan to join together in solidarity to oppose the national policy to separate and deport undocumented immigrants, racial disparities in incarceration rates, and the threat of violence that indigenous Shinnecock women face.
