Community Response to Vandalism at the Rich Forum

This petition had 39 supporters

We are appalled to learn that a swastika and Star of David were found drawn outside the Rich Forum. Anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry have no place in our community.

We are grateful for and encourage the efforts of the Stamford Police Department to conduct a thorough investigation and ensure accountability.

Our community is strongest when we stand together. As leaders and residents of Stamford and surrounding communities, we stand together as neighbors and commit ourselves to working against all forms of hatred.
