OUR COMMUNITY GUIDELINES - Be Peaceful - Be Safe - Be Kind - Be Respectful - Be Real
Since the election of Donald Trump, Westchester County has suffered a wave of anti-Semitic actions and hate speech directed at Jews, people of color, and immigrants. Our community centers have received bomb threats, our children are being taunted at school about deportation, and people of color have been attacked with racial slurs. We were assured by County Executive Astorino that our Human Rights Commission is working to combat these issues.
Yet, the Commission appears blind to these incidents. It has refused to answer calls or e-mails from the community. An entire week passed before they issued a press release. While condemning the hateful acts, they offered no action plan to combat them.
If you are as bothered by these incidents as I am, please sign my petition to demand action from the Human Rights Commission. https://www.change.org/p/james-castro-blanco-action-from-the-westchester-human-rights-commission?recruiter=689798735&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink
Please share the link with friends so we can show the County that we mean it!
