BEND, OR -- Several social justice and faith-based organizations will join together for a Peace rally Sunday, January 10, in front of the Deschutes County Courthouse. Greg Delgado, with the Central Oregon Social Justice Center, tells KBND News the “Stop the Hate” rally is an effort to put an end to the anti-Muslim rhetoric across the country, "Against that dialog that’s happening in our political campaigns right now, to say that we stand as a community united and respect with all people of color, with the Muslim community, with everybody. That’s a very strong message – a public message."

 

Delgado expects the District attorney and other county and city officials to participate. "We are a welcoming community. Muslim and Latinos, we’re basically doing a rally to say that peace and justice is for everybody in our community; that’s the message that we’re going to be laying that day."
 
Sunday's rally begins at 4:30 p.m., in front of the courthouse on Bond Street, in downtown Bend.
