Residents Rally Against Hate Crimes in Compton

Janet Zappala and Melissa Pamer (NBCLA) | February 2, 2013

In the wake of recent racially motivated crimes in Compton, authorities and community leaders gathered Saturday for a “Rally Against Hate Crimes.”

Held a day after Black History Month began, the event was meant to bring together Latino and African Americans especially.

The president of the NAACP’s Compton branch, which organized the rally, told NBC4 she wants to avoid a “street race war” and make sure residents of a changing Compton understand that authorities are addressing recent crimes.

“It’s about inclusion,” President Paulette Simpson-Gipson said at Saturday’s rally at the Compton Courthouse. “It’s about giving our young people opportunities to make a difference.”

The noon rally was also supported by Compton Mayor Eric Perrodin and Project Islamic Hope director Najee Ali, an outspoken community activist.
