Gathering planned at home hit by racist graffiti
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- An immigrant-led group devoted to building bridges between refugees and their new communities is holding a "Love Your Neighbor" gathering in the Concord, N.H., neighborhood where racist graffiti has once again targeted an African family at their home.
The gathering led by New American Africans is being held Thursday at the home of a family that was subjected to the graffiti this week. The program starting at noon includes songs and words of welcome from community leaders and members.
The family came to the U.S. from Somalia as refugees and has been living in New Hampshire for eight years.
The group held a "Love Your Neighbor" event last fall when similar graffiti was found on three other homes occupied by African families.
