When Refugee rights are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump declared war on immigrants, Muslims, women, and raw American values. In his first week in office he has used his pen and pulpit to violate our Constitution and our way of life. Already, thanks to our allies at the ACLU, a federal judge has put a stay on the Executive Order that caused the detention of many innocent Muslims at airports upon their legal entry to the United States. Protests are being organized around the country to protect those who are still being illegally detained and to put an end to this disgusting and criminal ban that violates human rights, basic morality and offends the founding of our country.

As we chanted last weekend in Washington and cities around the country: “Love, not hate, makes America great.”

 

Join a protest in your community today, to stop Donald Trump’s un-American ban on Muslims.

If you’d like to add an event to this list, please email info.ufpj@gmail.com or add it to our calendar and sign the Peace Pledge to join the campaign and get important organizing updates.

On April 27, 2016, United for Peace and Justice convened a member group conference to address Resisting Militarism & Racism While Strengthening Our Base in 2016. On that call, several UFPJ member group contacts described the work they were doing to challenge islamophobia. Our discussion acknowledged the rise in hate crimes and racism, particularly toward Muslims living in America and abroad, including refugees of the USA’s foreign wars. We also identified the dehumanization of Muslim and Arab peoples as a key component in enabling the basic function of the war machine.

confrontingislamophobiaworking-groupOne of the outcomes of that member group call was the scheduling of UFPJ’s first ever Confronting Islamophobia Working Group meeting. Since then, nearly a dozen representatives of local and national organizations around the country have been meeting regularly to coordinate in our efforts to challenge islamophobia and racism as a tool of war. By working together to confront islamophobia, we aim to achieve greater understanding, organization, collaboration, solidarity, and to build powerful tools for peace and security.
