Join Communities United Against Hate Tonight!

The next Communities United Against Hate meeting is 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10 at St. John's Episcopal Church, 1105 Quarrier Street. That is the corner of Quarrier and Leon Sullivan Way.

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 supporting the effort.

Please RSVP to or (304) 340-3584.

The focus Wednesday is bringing concerns about discrimination to light and translating those concerns to action.

The Aug. 5 "Not In Our Town" forum kicked off the series, and more than 125 people attended. It also produced many creative ideas, which we help create action plans to address racism in the community.

Child care will be available at Wednesday's meeting, and if you want to take advantage, contact the number or email address above.
