The Solidarity March ended at Ezzi Masjid LA

On Sunday, October 28 members of LA jamaat joined in the 2nd Annual Interfaith Solidarity March. The original agenda of the march was to promote housing initiatives in the San Fernando Valley, especially with regards to homeless shelters. However, in the wake of the Pittsburgh shooting the previous day, the event also took on a serious tone of solidarity against violence targeting people of faith, freedom of religion, and the sentiment that an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

Hundreds of people from all faiths walked side by side along the 1.5 mile route. The march started at Temple Aaliyah after introductions by Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel, stopping at Woodland Hills Presbyterian Church, and then ending at Ezzi Masjid.

The end of the march at Ezzi Masjid saw speeches by local religious leaders, the march organizers, Los Angeles City Council member Bob Blumenfield, and Aamir bhaisaheb Hatimi. The march was heavily covered on local news by all major networks.
