Tim Kaine to Visit Fairfax Jewish Community Center in Wake of Hateful Anti-Semitic Vandalism

In the wake of last weekend’s hateful vandalism at the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia in Fairfax, Senator Tim Kaine will visit the JCC on Saturday, October 13. He will meet with Jewish faith leaders and members of the local community to stand in solidarity against fear and hatred and discuss a path forward. Throughout the weekend, Kaine will engage faith and communities of color in the Northern Virginia area, emphasize his continued belief that Virginia’s diversity makes the Commonwealth stronger, and share his inclusive message of building a Virginia that works for all.

On Saturday morning he will visit a community block party celebrating diversity hosted by the Dar al-Noor Islamic Community Center in Manassas. Afterwards, he will tour the St. James Athletic Center in Springfield, a newly opened, African American-owned sports complex. Later, he will join Congressman Gerry Connolly and 10th District congressional candidate Jennifer Wexton in Annandale for the Democratic Asian Americans of Virginia’s celebration of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. In the evening, he will be the keynote speaker at the Arlington NAACP’s 71st Freedom Fund Banquet.

On Sunday, Kaine will begin the day at the Congregation Olam Tikvah Men’s Club annual candidate brunch and forum in Fairfax, before visiting the Raj Khalsa Gurdwara in Sterling with Wexton. Finally, he will end the weekend at the United Hindu and Jain Temples’ Diwali Mela celebration in Chantilly.

Media interested in attending any of these events should contact Kaine campaign press secretary Brandon Gassaway at brandon@timkaine.com.
