Task Force Reaches Out To Leith, ND

A blog, Not In Our Town, has started to raise awareness and support for the residents of Leith, N.D., who are fighting an attempted takeover of their town by a white supremacist. You can read more here.

On Saturday, the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations sent the following open letter to the 22 residents of Leith, N.D., and all other North Dakotans (in wake of the attempt by a white supremacist from Canada to establish a racist stronghold in Leith):



“The Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations Board of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, stands in solidarity with the good residents of Leith. We praise you for your courageous determination to oppose the message of hate and those who promote white supremacy. You are doing exactly what all communities should do and that is never remain silent in the face of hate. We have spent 32 years opposing the doctrines and activities of the neo-Nazis and other extremists’ movements and thus we stand shoulder to shoulder with you and ask all the good people of North Dakota to do the same.”

Question: Are you concerned re: the attempt by a white supremacist to take over the small North Dakota town of Leith?
