March Against Hate in Antioch

Sunday, September 23, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Baha’is, Zoroastrians and other believers joined a “March Against Hate” that wended its way from Antioch City Hall to Antioch High School. In response to an arson attack on a local mosque, members of the community walked together to demonstrate their unity and support.

Fr. Tom Bonacci, pastor of St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Antioch and a member of the Interfaith Council board of directors called the community to move “beyond tolerance to active respect- to stand together as a community.”
The event was organized by the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, which also announced an upcoming workshop on “Terrorist or Neighbor? Misconceptions about Islam” at 5 p.m. Oct. 21 at St. Ignatius Catholic Church, 3351 Contra Loma Blvd. in Antioch.
