NYS Senator to Hold Forum On Reversing Hate
A New York state senator is hosting a roundtable in Westchester County Wednesday night, April 3, on hate.
Prompted by the recent mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand and mass shootings in recent years in the U.S., Democratic state Senator Pete Harckham of South Salem is hosting a public roundtable called “Hate in the Age of Multiculturalism: Are Thoughts and Prayers Enough?” Harckham says the discussion will focus on steps that need to be taken in government, schools, workplaces, religious institutions, law enforcement agencies and elsewhere to address the hate spreading through society. Panelists include the mayor of Sleepy Hollow; president of the Peekskill NAACP, religious leaders and a member of the Westchester Human Rights Commission. The forum begins at 7 p.m. in the Pleasantville High School auditorium.
