Join Communities United Against Hate Tonight

As part of an effort to strengthen our region by building a community that embraces and benefits from the contributions of all of its citizens, the Charleston Area Alliance is joining the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of West Virginia, the West Virginia Hate Crimes Task Force, the YWCA, Covenant House and many other organizations in presenting “Communities United Against Hate: Not in Our Town,” a public forum to be held a 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 5 at the Charleston Marriott Town Center.

The forum is a first in a series of activities planned to bring all sectors of our community together to promote inclusion.

The featured speaker at the first event is Tom "TJ" Leyden, a former neo-Nazi activist and recruiter. Leyden, who experienced a profound change of heart, has worked for five years for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, spoken to 650,000 students and conducted trainings at the Pentagon, the FBI, military bases and for numerous law enforcement agencies.
