On December 7, 2016, All Peoples Community Center attended the Vigil at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. Our name All Peoples means that All are welcome so it was important to stand in solidarity with our diverse Community Members.
A Message from the Sponsors:
Vigil in Little Tokyo to Stand Together with Muslims and Immigrants
In response to the need to both process the recent election results and to respond to the increase of hate crimes against Muslims and immigrant communities, the Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress (NCRR), the Nikkei Progressives (NP) and the Vigilant Love Coalition are sponsoring a vigil this Wednesday, December 7, 2016 in the Plaza of the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) at 5:00 PM.

We pledge to make Little Tokyo and all communities a safe place no matter a person’s race, religion or gender preference. We pledge to see Little Tokyo as a welcoming place – as long as they take their shoes off.
We are Muslims. We are immigrants. We are People of Color. We are Sikhs and Jews. We are LGBTQ. We are marginalized. We are women and we all stand together.
