Garden State Equality’s headquarters on Main Street in Asbury Park was vandalized Saturday. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime.
The perpetrator(s) targeted the front door of GSE’s offices where a rainbow flag is prominently displayed. Executive director Christian Fuscarino was inside working at the time and was not injured.
“Garden State Equality is on the front lines of the fight to advance equality for all. An attack against any community is an attack against us all,” said U.S. Senator Cory Booker in a morning email. He continued, “I condemn acts of hate against all communities, whether Jewish, Muslim or LGBT, in the strongest possible terms. We must stand united with love against the shadow of hate that has been cast over our great nation.”
GSE is working with the Asbury Park Police Department to find the vandals.
