I was with Kerri Kelly on 9/11 to honor her step-father Lt Joe Leavey, a fireman who rushed up flights of stairs to save people and was killed 15 years ago today. She wants an end to hate & bigotry in Joe’s name.
Together we are reclaiming 9/11 in the name of #revolutionarylove. On 9/15 she joined me in Phoenix to honor my family friend and uncle Balbir Singh Sodhi, Sikh American and the first of dozens killed in hate crimes in the aftermath of 9/11.
