March against hate


In light of recent events and, sadly, the hate crimes happening in Alameda, I am organizing a peaceful march. We will meet at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Islamic Center, 901 Santa Clara Ave., and march to Temple Israel, 3189 Mecartney Road. Both have suffered hate crimes.

I wish this to be a nonviolent, peaceful and supportive march to show love and support for all our Alameda friends and families. I invite our children to come and to rally along with us and support the idea of showing love, encouragement and understanding that two wrongs don’t make a right and that love triumphs over hate. 

I encourage participants to bring signs, letters to hand to our neighbors, hugs, songs and anything they wish to leave behind in the spirit of love and support. 

I appreciate your support, help and understanding.
