Assembly Homeland Security Chair Quijano Urges Kean University Community to Come Together to Combat Racially Motivated Threats

Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee Chair Annette Quijano on Wednesday urged the Kean University Community to come together to combat the racially motivated threats spread on Twitter last night following a peaceful campus rally to raise awareness of racial unrest across college campuses nationwide.

“Given the nature of these disturbing threats, now is the time for everyone on the Kean campus to come together and cooperate with law enforcement so that justice can be meted out. It’s my hope that these threats, as disturbing as they are, are just that – threats.

“I applaud the Kean University community for acting swiftly and notifying all of the appropriate local, state and federal authorities so that the coward hiding behind social media to propagate fear and racism can be brought to justice.

“The only way to make sure these type of threats never come to fruition is for everyone to remain vigilant, work together, rather than against each other, and ‘say something if they see something,'” said Quijano (D-Union).
