Lake Worth to vote on resolution supporting Muslim communities

Lake Worth City Hall

LAKE WORTH — Three weeks ago, a few members of the Lake Worth Interfaith Network wrote a proclamation¬†declaring the city a safe place for Muslims.

That proclamation, which speaks out against Islamophobia, is now a resolution supporting Muslim communities in and around Lake Worth.

Lake Worth commissioners are scheduled to vote on the resolution at Tuesday’s meeting.

“We adapted the proclamation from one passed Seattle and are hopeful other cities will follow our example,” said Lisa Stewart, an organization member who asked Commissioner Christopher McVoy to bring the resolution to the commission. “Anything we can do to promote understanding and building bridges to other groups is a good thing.”
