Following is a statement from Sacramento County Board Chair and Third District Supervisor Rich Desmond:
“Hundreds of hate-filled leaflets, targeting members of our Jewish community, have been distributed in Arden Arcade and in the City of Sacramento over the last two days. I am monitoring the situation closely with the Sacramento County Sheriff and community leaders.
“We firmly stand in solidarity with members of Sacramento’s Jewish community, offer our unwavering support and affirm that discrimination and prejudice in any form is unacceptable. Such acts of hate and ignorance have no place in our society. We believe in fostering a community that embraces diversity, promotes understanding, and celebrates the richness of all cultures and religions. Together. we can continue to work towards a future free from bigotry and intolerance.”
