Vermont Interfaith Action Event
Friday, November 18, 2016
11 AM – 12 PM
Montpelier, VT 05602
As many of you know, we are not immune to the backlash of hate sweeping our nation. There have been disparaging tweets, threatening phone calls, and a house break-in directed at Rep. Kiah Morris, a woman of color from Bennington. We have also had candidates for local offices in VT making racist remarks and sharing racist links on their Facebook pages. As well as threats against a trans person and swastika signs showing up at college campuses. We’re sure others of you have experienced incidents as well both before and after the elections.
So let’s join together on the steps of the Statehouse for a press conference this Friday, November 18th at 11:00 AM to set a tone of love and solidarity, and to speak out against the recent spate of hate crimes and threats to members of our community since the election.
