On Sunday, January 22nd the Davis Islamic Center was the victim of hate-crime vandalism: windows were shattered, bicycle tires and seats cut up, and bacon was left on door handles. The Davis community has, in the days that followed, shown a tremendous outpouring of support, bringing flowers, goods and monetary donations to help rebuild that which was damaged. Already, tens of thousands of dollars have been raised for repairs.
Today, Friday January 27th, a solidarity rally was held in Central Park, sponsored by Statement of Love and The Gatherings Initiative, a project of the Davis Phoenix Coalition. Hundreds of community members of all ages, races, and religions turned out in support. Speakers included the Imam of the Davis Islamic Center, Davis Mayor Robb Davis, District Supervisor Don Saylor, Sacramento CAIR members, local religious leaders, student groups, and more.
A banner and sharpies lay across the foot of the steps to the US Bicycle Museum for community members to write messages of solidarity for the Islamic Center of Davis.
