People in Roanoke joined a nationwide movement, by stopping and praying on Saturday.
It's part of the "stand up for religious freedom" rallies sweeping the country.
Many people came out to Elmwood Park to take part.
The Danville group, "The Church Sisters," which just played for the President- was on hand to entertain the people.
Religious and political leaders took the stage to express the importance of our Constitutional rights.
Many people and groups feel like their beliefs are under attack.
President of Renew a Nation, Melvin Adams said, "As Americans and according to our Constitution, we guarentee religious freedom for everyone." "Everybody has religious freedom, should have religious frieedom."
He also said, "What we are experiencing, however is that everybody pretty much has religious freedom, except there is an aggressive attack against those who are Christian and pray in Jesus name."
It was a relatively small turnout for the event.
Many blamed it on apathy and people feeling like their voice doesn't matter.
