Courage Campaign, a nonprofit progressive group led by chairman Dr. Paul Song, announced Wednesday Dec. 23, that it is donating $11,000 to help rebuild the Coachella mosque firebombed earlier this month.

“We hope that the donation of $11,000 from the Courage Campaign and our members will help rebuild this mosque in the Coachella Valley and let the victims of persecution there and everywhere know that they are not alone,” Song said.

Its 1.1 million members “come from every faith and tradition” and wanted to make a statement against the Dec. 11 attack on the Islamic Society of the Coachella Valley.

Islamic Society President Reymundo Nour has not been available for comment.
