SAY NO TO HATE, SAY YES TO UNITY
NO AL ODIO, SI A LA UNIDAD

In the wake of recent hateful attacks by a candidate for New York City Council, New Yorkers are standing up to call for an end to divisive language from our leaders. Attacking political rivals--or anyone--because of their faith, ethnicity, national origin, race, gender, or sexual orientation is unacceptable and must be condemned in the loudest terms. We need our leaders to work to unite the diverse communities of New York City towards the common goal of creating a more equitable, just, and prosperous city.

You can help by signing the petition below, and inviting your friends and neighbors to do the same.

Read coverage of the recent attacks:

THE PETITION

We, the undersigned, call on all candidates for public office in New York City to refrain from attacks on the religion, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation of our fellow New Yorkers. We know that there is much more that unites us than divides us, and that together there is nothing we can’t achieve in this wonderfully diverse city.  We expect all those who would represent us to say no to hate, and yes to unity.

Los que aquí firmamos, hacemos un llamado a todos los candidatos a puestos políticos en la ciudad de Nueva York a abstenerse de ataques a la religión, raza, etnicidad, género, u orientación sexual de nuestros conciudadanos de la ciudad de Nueva York. Sabemos que hay muchas más cosas que nos unen de las que nos dividen, y juntos, no hay nada que no podamos lograr en esta maravillosa y diversa ciudad. Esperamos que todos los que aspiran a representarnos digan no al odio y sí a la unidad.
