Thousands March United Against Anti-Semitism on Long Island

IMG_2602


MINEOLA, NY – Nassau County Executive Laura Curran was joined by over 2,500 Long Islanders yesterday to march in solidarity with the Jewish community and against Anti-Semitism in response to horrific attacks in Brookyn, Monsey, and Jersey City, as well as incidents of Anti-Semitic graffiti at the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County. The event brought together faith leaders, community advocates, and elected officials who marched and offered remarks in support of the Jewish community.

In December, Nassau and Suffolk Counties formed a bi-county coalition that will identify and develop a plan of action to combat and report acts of hate and bias incidents on Long Island. In conjunction with a number of organizations, today’s march marked one of the task force’s inaugural initiatives.

“We organized this march to send a clear message in one voice: Long Islanders of all faiths and backgrounds stand united with our Jewish community and against Anti-Semitism,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.
