“WE ARE MANY-United Against Hate” Speaks Out Against Recent Hate Crimes

We wish to send a powerful message that these acts of hatred and violence against any one of us, will not be tolerated.

“WE ARE MANY–United Against Hate” speaks out against the recent hate crimes in Washington and Kansas. We stand together in opposition to hate filled speech and actions in the shooting of a Sikh man in Washington who was told “Go back to your own country” and in the Kansas murder of a man from India who was told “Get out of my country.” We wish to send a powerful message that these acts of hatred and violence against any one of us, will not be tolerated.

We want our brothers and sisters in the Madison area who are of the Sikh faith, and others who have been victims of hate activity to know that they are not alone – that many Americans are standing with them in these tense times.

We are common people who are urban and rural, spiritual and secular, seeking equal protection for all, united against hate, bigotry and racism. We have joined together to replace acts of hatred with acts of love.

We ask public officials and community members to join us in this effort to respect all people and to act against the hatred and violence that threatens us all. Please stand with us and join our Movement (www.united-against-hate.org), by emailing us at makhtar623@gmail.com.
