My name is Melanie and I am 11 years old. My mother and I have been horrified by the recent events in the news. My mom spoke at NIOT Princeton and suggested having an NIOT in Olney, Brookeville, Sandy Spring might help me, and others, feel we are doing more than just being upset. We want to help stop the hate as much as we can, therefore we are starting a new NIOT branch in this area. We are seeking your support to help us get the word out, help plan the events we are hoping to have and spread love.
