Vermont: Brick Thrown Through Window of Activist Building with “Black Lives Matter” Sign

HeadlineMar 28, 2016
Vermont

In what activists say is a growing trend of racist hate fueled by the 2016 presidential campaign, unknown attackers in Burlington, Vermont, threw a brick through a window of a community center with a “Black Lives Matter” sign displayed in the window. The building houses organizations that work for migrant and workers’ rights. Racial justice organizer Senowa Mize-Fox condemned the attack late last week.

Senowa Mize-Fox: “It’s sad to me that I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not surprised that these acts of hate continue to happen, that racially motivated attacks, in a community that prides itself on being progressive and liberal, continue to happen.”
