The following is an open letter to the community from the members of the Highland Park Human Relations Commission
The Human Relations Commission is outraged, angry and saddened by the spate of anti-Semitic events that have happened in New York City and in New Jersey, including right here in Highland Park.
It is essential for us to identify t he origins of this rising hatred and to address it deliberately. The Human Relations Commission welcomes the opportunity to work with the members of our community and with our elected officials on the local, county, and state level in order to make sure that hate truly has no home here.
As a community, we have a moral obligation to learn fro one another and to understand one another through policy programming, education, and compassion
We all must act from a position of hope to empower and engage our neighbor so we never live in fear. We refuse to live in fear.
