The Town of North Hempstead is partnering with the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center to present “Not In Our Town-A Unity & Anti-Hate Conference” on Thursday, May 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Clinton G. Martin Park in New Hyde Park.
We want to build inclusive communities for all and make all our neighbors feel safe. By coming together and sharing ideas and information, we are better able to take a strong stand against hate that sends a powerful message—Not In Our Town.
We hope that you can attend this special event and share this invite with others, as we bring together community leaders from across Long Island to take a stand against hate crimes, violence and intolerance. Or, you can just display or email the attached poster.
Guest speakers include:
Village of Patchogue Mayor Paul Pontieri; Steve Markowitz, Chairman and Tracy Garrison Feinberg, Director of Education Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County; Dr. Isma Chaudhry, President of the Islamic Center of L.I.; David Kilmnick from Long Island Gay And Lesbian Youth; Joselo Lucero of the Hagedorn Foundation; and a representative from the Nassau County Police Department.
We need to remain vigilant against hateful acts and supportive to everyone in our community who needs us. North Hempstead is a place for everyone and we are determined that no one ever feel threatened or afraid due to their religion race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
