On Sunday, September 24th, President Trump issued a new Muslim Ban. This third and latest version of the Muslim Ban is as un-American and unconstitutional as the previous versions. It is critical that before the new ban goes into effect on October 18th, 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 in downtown Los Angeles 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 administration that we are against the banning of Muslims and refugees.

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 turning his divisive rhetoric into discriminatory policies like the Muslim Ban.

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 Temporary Protected Status (TPS), the transgender military ban, and the re-expansion 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.
