Rally: Jersey City Stands with our Muslim & Immigrant Community
January 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Jersey City Stands with our Muslim and Immigrant Community. Come in solidarity and peace as we show our strength in diversity as one of the most diverse cities in the nation. Use and follow #JerseyCityStands
A violation of the constitution. A religious test. We are not hysterical. A President who continues to lie to the American people to propagate anti muslim sentiment, bigotry and violence. A 7 nation ban that detains and sends back people because they are Muslim is UnAmerican and immoral. This is detention without due process- chilling to constitutional norms, civil and religious liberty. This IS a matter of life and death for Refugees and empowers Extremists. This is not the time to tune out- whether it be social media, on the news, in coffee shops- the content will keep showing up in your life calling you to action. Don’t run from what is being asked of us. Answer the call.
Our children and grandchildren will ask us about these times and what we did to defend our country and stand up for each other. Looking forward everyone at the rally. -Michael Billy #JerseyCityStands
