Vigils in support of refugees and against Islamophobia


Racism has a long, ugly history in our country. Our politicians have long stirred the pot of racial hatred for short term electoral gains.

Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and Jim Crow are all in the same category. As an immigrant nation, those in power have always tried to pit one group against another. Closing the boarder to Middle East refugees after our bombs have devastated so many countries there would bringing such discrimination to a national level.

MECR held vigils in Woodstock and Rhinebeck, and more are being planned.
