Almost every day, a new hate incident is in the news. Mosques and synagogues are being vandalized, people of color, immigrants and LGBT people are threatened on a daily basis. For over 20 years, as a leader of Not In Our Town, I’ve reported on community response to hate violence across the country. Hate is not new, but we have never seen the level of hate activity that has been reported in the past few months. In this volatile time, there are also remarkable signs of hope and solidarity, and that’s the story NIOT seeks to highlight every day.
