    Friday, June 30, 9am-6pm, the Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations will hold an all-day public hearing in City Council chambers, on the 5th floor of 414 Grant St: "Religious and Ethnic Intimidation: Government Policies and Local Impacts." Speakers from across the country and here in Pittsburgh will update us on the latest developments and effects of both government and grassroots xenophobia and Islamaphobia. Speakers will also share practical resources, services, and constructive responses, from the successful legal defenses of civil rights and liberties, to the diverse protective policies of "Sanctuary Cities," to a wide range of education, outreach, and shared community service efforts with our immigrant and Muslim neighbors. City Council has set up this web page where people can sign up for public comment.
