Muslims and Refugees Are Welcome Here
Say it loud, say it clear: refugees are welcome here! With the Trump Administration calling for a new anti-Muslim travel ban, it’s time to fight back. It’s time to show up for our Muslim, refugee, and immigrant neighbors by heading to the airports (or other appropriate meeting spot) to stop the anti-Muslim travel ban. AGENDA Go to your local airport. Get the address and make sure to determine a meeting spot. Don’t have an airport? Your local government building or federal courthouse are also great. Post your event in your #Resist group. Recruit a few friends and try to go pick them up so they can’t flake on you. If you can, make some signs to bring with you. Go to the courthouse with your friends and be ready to stay for awhile. (Make sure to check the weather and be prepared!) If you can, alert the media ahead of time. If you have a little more time, invite local leaders -- this could be refugees or immigrants, refugee resettlement organizations, elected officials, or local faith leaders. Post about your event on social media using the hashtags #RefugeesWelcome or #NoBanNoWallNoRaids. Want more?
