Statement from Senator Anna M. Kaplan on The 'Proud Boys' Latest March Through Long Island Downtown

CARLE PLACE, NY (MAY 22, 2022) State Senator Anna M. Kaplan (D-North Hills) issued the following statement following news of the so-called "Proud Boys" once again marching through the streets of Rockville Centre:

Senator Anna M. Kaplan said "While we were rallying against hate yesterday in Great Neck, the racist, neo-fascist ‘Proud boys’ were marching through the streets of Nassau County once again in an effort to intimidate our community and spread their vile, hateful agenda.

We have to reject this hate and extremism whenever it shows itself in our community, so I’m calling this shameful display out for what it is: nothing more than a modern-day Klan march happening in our community.

There’s no place for this hate on Long Island, and we all need to speak with one voice in saying so."
