A group of civil rights and faith leaders are demanding a meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray in the wake of the New Zealand terror attacks that killed at least 50 people as they prayed in mosques. The killer was a white nationalist who named President Trump as an inspiration in his online racist screed.

The groups want the FBI to address “the threat to public safety” and to their communities “by white nationalist violence.”

Leaders from Muslim Advocates, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fundthe Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Union for Reform Judaismand the Sikh Coalition all signed a letter sent to Wray in March, urging the FBI to take the threat seriously. — read the full article at NPR.org
