"It's deplorable for leaders of recognized anti-Muslim hate groups, who are identified as such by the Southern Poverty Law Center alongside neo-Nazis and white supremacist organizations, to be given a platform anywhere in our state, but especially at a place of worship. We want to show those who would hear negative messages about Islam at the event the truth: that their Muslim neighbors are purveyors of peace within their communities." Robbins noted that a coalition of almost 100 interfaith leaders, including some of the most prominent religious leaders in the Boston-area Christian and Jewish communities, released an open statement expressing deep concerns about the event.
