#NoMuslimBanEver March and Rally

October 15, 2017 - 12:00pm
Meeting in front of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center

On October 10th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Muslim Ban case. This is an important moment—win or lose—that will set a major legal, political, and moral precedent for all communities. It is critical that in the days leading to the arguments there be strong, loud, mass mobilizations that send a message to the world: Arab, African, Muslim, and Middle Eastern communities are organized, and our allies have our backs. 

Please join us for a march and rally, to uplift the voices of those most impacted. Join us in standing up for our communities and against racist laws. Let’s band together to tell the Supreme Court that we are against the Muslim and Refugee Bans.

In the months leading up to the election, Donald Trump attacked brown and black immigrant communities with xenophobic rhetoric. Not even a week into his presidency, he began making good on his campaign promise of "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims and refugees entering the United States" by instituting his Muslim Ban. We have seen over the last few months, 4th and 9th Circuit Courts rule the ban is unconstitutional. Now, its fate lies in the hands of the Supreme Court of the United States. With our communities continuously under attack, with the cancellation of DACA, the building of the wall, the substantial increase in ICE raids, the looming deadline of TPS, the transgender military ban, and the reexpansion of wars abroad, we must continue to stand up and speak out against this administration's violent and bigoted policies.

We WILL NOT be silent against white supremacy and Islamophobia, and WE WILL stand up in solidarity for all our communities in the face of any and all discriminatory policies.
