This townhall is in response to an incident on May 24th, when two young men who are longtime Echo Park residents were attacked and stabbed after the perpetrators yelled anti-gay slurs at them because they had a rainbow flag on their bicycles. The LAPD has categorized the incident as a hate crime. The perpetrators have not been identified or captured.
