Friends,

 

     I spoke this morning with Imam Ibrahim Rahim of the Allston-Brighton Islamic Center, as we do what we can to help ensure that innocent people are not targeted in the aftermath of Monday’s Marathon  criminal attacks.

 

     In response to my question of what people of good faith can do to stand with communities that may be  stigmatized and victimized unjustly, he asked that people join in a candlelight vigil this Friday (April 19) at 9 p.m at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. That’s at 100 Malcolm X Blvd, Roxbury Crossing, There’s an Orange Line T stop there.

 

    If you can, in solidarity, please join this vigil.

 

    For peace, justice and human solidarity,

 

     Joseph Gerson

     American Friends Service Committee
