Heal Our Communities_ Hosted by the Amadou Diallo Foundation

  • Date Posted: Oct 5, 2016

On Thursday, September 29th, MHHC participated in a deeply impacting event hosted by the Amadou Diallo Foundation at Riverside Church in Harlem, NY. Amadou Diallo was a 23 year-old college student from Liberia that was shot 41 times by NYC Police officers as he stood in the doorway of his Bronx home on February 4, 1999. The event, aptly named “Heal our Communities,” is an initiative launched by Amadou’s mother and president of the foundation, Kadiatou Diallo, that focuses on healing racially divided communities through education.
