CHMP National Advisory Council member, Patrice O’Neill, with the NIOT film crew, is on the ground in Patchogue, N.Y. this week for events honoring Marcelo Lucero two years after his death. Lucero, an Ecuadorean immigrant who lived in the U.S. for 15 years, was 37-years-old when he was attacked by a group of teenagers on Nov. 8, 2008.

Not In Our Town, an interactive website dedicated to connecting people around the world fighting hate and intolerance. NIOT supports and promotes dialogue and collaboration – and connects isolated individuals and communities into a vital international network of people saying “Not in our town, not in our school, not on our campus, not in our world.”
