Statement on Nantucket Vandalism 

We are saddened, but not disheartened, by the attack on our beautiful and historic African Meeting House on Nantucket. We deeply value the outpouring of support expressed by members of the Nantucket community, and by our friends and colleagues here in Boston and across the country. Equally important, we appreciate the tireless efforts of the Nantucket Police Department, which rightly describes this senseless act of vandalism as a hate crime.

While the vile message was quickly washed away, it will take time for us to heal from this assault on our sense of community and security.

2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Frederick Douglass’ birth. It also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. We must stand in solidarity against those who aim to tear us apart. Our voices must be louder and stronger than the voices of hatred. .

We welcome your support at https://maah.ejoinme.org/?tabid=536006
