Anti-Hate Events Being Held Sunday In Gloversville And Johnstown

Events denouncing white supremacy and promoting tolerance are being held in Gloversville and Johnstown Sunday in the wake of a three-part series in a local newspaper that reported on the presence of the Ku Klux Klan in Fulton County.

The No Hoods in My Woods event will begin at 2 p.m. at the Johnstown Public Library. A peace rally will also be held on North Main Street in Gloversville from 2:30 to 3:30.

The series published by the Leader-Herald drew both alarm and criticism from subscribers and local officials.
