The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) calls for active participation in this important conversation and discussion amidst the increased domestic terror acts and acts of hate across the nation.

AHRC salutes the Dearborn Police Department for this important initiative and calls upon other police departments to organize such events. Time is due for active and effective engagement between first responders and the communities they serve. No location is immune of being a target. Collaboration is a basic step towards preventing and defeating violent attacks.
“Hate is blind. Ignorance is blind. Terror is blind,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “Through effective engagement and partnership with stakeholders, bringing communities and first responders to the table, we can together help contribute to the safety and security of our schools and neighborhoods.” continued Hamad.
