36 religious communities show solidarity for the Islamic Society of Vermont

From Vermont-

It's not every day more than 200 people from 36 different faith-based communities come together to support one religion.

“We are so honored to have you here today, and we are so honored to have this atmosphere of love and support,” said Imam Islam Hassan from the Islamic Society of Vermont.

A hate letter written to the Islamic Society of Vermont prompted religious leaders across the state to come together.

“The members of the congregation of Vermont Interfaith Action strongly condemn this hateful action, we find the sentiment expressed in this letter, completely unacceptable,” said the Rev. Earl Kooperkamp, from the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepard.
