On June 16, 2002 The Boston Globe reported on the upcoming forum "After 9/11: Freedom and Tolerance in the US and Watertown," in Watertown, MA. The event "is sponsored by the Justice with Peace Task Force of Watertown Citizens for Environmental Safety and The World in Watertown... The idea for the forum came from a woman of Russian descent, Sue-Ellen Hershman-Tcherepnin, who heard... stories from her Arab-American friends who were having problems... Two guest speakers will address civil liberties issues and fighting discrimination against Arab-Americans."
