Unifying Our Communities - Responding to Hate

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

On January 18, Abby and Nicole joined more than 250 community leaders at the Constitution Center for a program co-sponsored by the Interfaith Center, Department of Justice, and Anti Defamation League titled Unifying our Community - Responding to Hate.  We heard from federal, state, and local governmental law enforcement as well as representations from several NGOs.  The ADL, ACLU, and Interfaith Center were also represented on panel presentations.  The bulk of the program focused on defining hate/bias incidents/crimes and the governmental and non-governmental resources available.  Abby spoke eloquently about how Interfaith Center programs are designed to fundamentally change our society with reactive and proactive initiatives. We hope that vulnerable communities in Philadelphia came away from the conference with practical resources and the confidence that they have the support of law enforcement and NGOs if their help is needed. Thank you to all who attended!
