People marching with banner

Imam Mohamed Hassan Adam had been a leader in the Somali Muslim community of Columbus, Ohio and also in the interfaith community of Columbus, Ohio. He had been an imam at Masjid Abu Hurairah Mosque on the Northeast Side of Columbus and a prominent member of the local Muslim and Somali communities.

He had been reported missing on 12-23-2021; his body was found the following day [12-24-2021]. His death has been ruled a homicide but official information about the cause of his death has not yet been released.

Several hundred of us gathered yesterday [12-31-2021] outside of the First Congregational Church [and next to the Washington Gladden Social Justice Park]; we then marched to Columbus City Hall for a rally with many different speakers.
