Tonight, the families of hate violence victims Jack Price and Jose Sucuzhanay will join members of the LGBTQ and immigrant communities in Queens for a community forum and dialogue on combating hate violence in New York City. Price, an openly gay man, was brutally beaten earlier this month in College Point, Queens in what police are calling a hate crime. Sucuzhanay, an Ecuadorian immigrant, was murdered last year in Bushwick, Brooklyn as the men who killed him yelled racist and anti-gay slurs. Other recent victims of hate crimes within the last three months have included Mario Vera, a Mexican immigrant in Bushwick, Carmella Etienne, a transgender woman in St. Albans, and Leslie Mora, a transgender woman in Jackson Heights. 

The event, "Intersecting Paths: Combatting Hate Violence in LGBTQ and Immigrant Communities," will educate community members on strategies for combating hate violence and on their rights in police interactions. It is hosted by 10 civil rights organizations, will include a panel discussion and small group discussions, and is open to all. It is part of Latino Pride Week.
