Solidarity Event for Muslim Community

When: Friday, February 03 2017 @ 12:15 PM - - 02:00PM
Where: Evergreen Islamic Center
2486 Ruby Avenue
San Josť, CA 95148
Description: Civil rights, faith groups, community activists and leaders will gather at Evergreen Islamic Center as part of a nationwide day of action to respond to Trumpís slew of unconstitutional, dangerous, and unconscionable Executive Orders targeting refugees and immigrants.

Participants in San Jose will be joined by fellow allies in other local events across the country, rallying, marching, and holding mass community gatherings to stand united with those ostracized by the Donald Trump Administration and against the administrationís plans for mass deportations, criminalization, hatred, and bans.

As Donald Trump tries to divide the country, allies will remind the nation that We Are All American.

We will stand in solidarity in front of Evergreen Islamic Center to welcome our Muslim brothers and sisters as they attend friday prayer. We will present Imam Faizal of Evergreen Islamic Center, with letters of support that were written by the community prior to the prayer. As prayer service begins, we will link arms and stand in protection of the mosque.

This event is sponsored by Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network (SIREN)
