Date: 
Sun, Mar 19, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

>>Due to the fortunate turn of events, we will be moving the whole of this action to Sunday. Our focus will remain largely the same: we are standing with, and in support of, immigrants and refugees, and we are standing against the negative, xenophobic sentiment towards them that leads to discriminatory policy. Please see the following link for the page for Sunday.<<

No Ban! No Wall!

Date: 
Sun, Mar 19, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

The White House has issued a new order banning travel from six Muslim majority countres, Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It also caps the total number of refugees admitted this fiscal year at 50,000, instead of 110,000.

The ban goes into effect March 16th.

We're calling all those who stand in solidarity with our Muslim and Refugee brothers and sisters to show up and resist this Islamophobic and Xenophobic action from the administration.
