Last night, a mosque in Moorhead, Minnesota was defaced with horrific white supremacist graffiti, including a swastika.
This isn’t a simple act of vandalism. This was an attempt to intimidate our Muslim neighbors during the holy month of Ramadan.
Unfortunately this is just another example of rising hate, not just against Muslims, but also other targeted groups including Asian Americans and Jews.
Jewish Community Action stands in solidarity with the Moorhead Muslim community, and urges our state lawmakers to take action to combat hate in Minnesota.
We can’t wait any longer. Our communities need comprehensive, statewide hate crimes reform NOW.
