ATXKind Announces Rally for Kindness Speakers

Updated: Nov 13, 2021

On Sunday, November 14, a diverse group of speakers will join the Central Texas community to take a stand against hate at a rally for kindness, compassion, and inclusiveness.

After a recent spike in incidents of antisemitism, hate speech and racism, the Rally for Kindness is an opportunity to heal, get inspired and take positive action.

This grassroots event, created with the support of Shalom Austin and Anti-Defamation League Austin, will feature a wide range of speakers from different communities and faith groups including:

Mayor Steve Adler

Council Member Alison Alter

Rabbi Neil Blumofe, Congregation Agudas Achim

U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett

State Senator Sarah Eckhardt

Rabbi Steven Folberg, Congregation Beth Israel

Rabbi Alan Freedman, Temple Beth Shalom

Ajit Giani, Austin Baha’i Community

Rev. Daryl Horton, Mt. Zion Baptist Church

Ford McCracken, Anderson High (AISD)

Alma Mena and Estevan Delgado, Austin Latino Coalition

Rudy Metayer, Texas Black Caucus Foundation

Imam Islam Mossaad, North Austin Muslim Community Center

Zohab Qadri, Austin Asian Communities Civic Coalition

Rev. Remington Johnson, Presbyterian Church

State Representative Eddie Rodriguez

Rick Rosenberg, Shalom Austin Board Chair

Arati Singh, AISD Board Trustee

Rev. Crystal Silva McCormick, Church of the Savior

Lynne Stein, ADL-Austin Board Chair

Amy Mok Wong, Asian American Cultural Center

Shannon Wolfson, former KXAN News anchor, will serve as emcee for the event. Attendees will also have a chance to learn about volunteer opportunities from local nonprofits so they can continue spreading kindness after the rally ends.

Hate has no place here in Central Texas. We are stronger together!
