In 2008, an Ecuadorian immigrant was killed in a hate crime in Patchogue, New York, but instead of destroying the community, it actually brought people together. In that spirit, WUSF and Community Tampa Bay brought a documentary on the story to the Bay area. University Beat on WUSF TV has more.

It took the brutal murder of a Hispanic immigrant for one Long Island community to say “not in our town.” Now USF, WUSF and “Community Tampa Bay” are teaming up to share a message of inclusion for the Bay area, directed particularly at immigrants and high school students. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has the story.
