The American Center for Justice (ACJ) vehemently condemns the recent act of vandalism directed at a historic African Methodist Episcopal church in Salt Lake City. Worshipers reported the destruction of a sign, while authorities discovered offensive phrases including 'Stay away from me,' 'You're not invited here,' 'No room for deceit and lies,' and 'May misfortune befall you.' These disgraceful actions seek to disrupt harmony, sow discord, propagate animosity, and advance racial bias.
The ACJ extends its appreciation to law enforcement for launching an investigation to apprehend those responsible for this deplorable incident. The organization also advocates for heightened community awareness initiatives and programs that encourage acceptance and integration, aiming to prevent such unacceptable occurrences. Collaborative efforts are crucial in cultivating a society that honors and embraces cultural and religious diversity, nurturing unity and harmonious cohabitation among its constituents.
As the American Center for Justice (ACJ), Michigan Chapter, we reiterate our resolute dedication to combat all manifestations of hate speech and racial prejudice.
