Group Offers $11,000 to Rebuild Firebombed Mosque

The leader of a nonprofit progressive group announced Wednesday it is donating $11,000 to help rebuild a Coachella mosque that was firebombed earlier this month.

Dr. Paul Song, chairman of the Courage Campaign, said its 1.1 million members “come from every faith and tradition” and wanted to make a statement against the Dec. 11 attack on the Islamic Society of the Coachella Valley.

“We hope that the donation of $11,000 from the Courage Campaign and our members will help rebuild this mosque in the Coachella Valley and let the victims of persecution there and everywhere know that they are not alone,” Song said.
