Not in Our Town
In 2017, North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town of North Hempstead pledged to not remain silent in the face of hate crimes, intolerance or violence. In response to hate crimes on Long Island, Supervisor Bosworth and members of the Town Board partnered with the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (HMTC) to present “Not In Our Town: A Unity & Anti-Hate Conference” on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at Clinton G. Martin Park.
The conference included keynote speaker Village of Patchogue Mayor Paul Pontieri; Steven Markowitz, Chairman and Tracy Garrison Feinberg, Director of Education, Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County; Dr. Isma Chaudhry, President of the Islamic Center of L.I.; David Kilmnick from Long Island Gay And Lesbian Youth; Joselo Lucero of the Hagedorn Foundation; and a representative from the Nassau County Police Department, who will discuss the department’s enhanced security, intensified patrols and response to hate crimes.
