“As residents of Melrose, Wakefield, Malden, and surrounding communities, we are deeply troubled by increasing acts of hatred we are witnessing that target members of groups based on race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity. We sincerely hope that our neighbors and friends will hear our families’ stories as an important cautionary tale.”
