Ashland United Against Hate

On Friday, August 18th, Ashland residents and neighbors gathered to stand United Against Hate. About 50 people gathered at Montenegro Square to hear words of unity and diversity from community leaders, and held signs to demonstrate to our neighbors that all are welcome in Ashland, and that we are a community that stands against white nationalism, racism, violence, oppression, and discrimination.  

Special thanks to Rabbi Margie Klein of Temple Sha’arei Shalom, Reverend Jason Rutherford of the  First Baptist Church in Framingham, Senator Karen Spilka, Betsy Emberley of Engage Ashland, Jon Featherston of the Ashland Republican Town Committee, and our own Co-Chair Makeda Keegan, for their inspiring words.
