[August 10, 2012] Yesterday, with the help of a lot of compassionate and motivated neighbors, community organizers, and officials, New American Africans put on a rally in support of the Somali family targeted by hate crimes here in Concord, New Hampshire.
The rally was a great success, bringing together several hundred community members in a show of strong support and love for the family, and demonstrating that acts of hatred and racism do not represent the views of this Concord neighborhood – nor will they be tolerated.
New American Africans would like to thank all those who came out in support of this beautiful family.
