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.
