Stand Up Against Islamophobia March

September 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Stand Up Against Islamophobia March

Saturday, September 17th @ 1pm @ May Day Plaza (in front of May Day Bookstore, 301 Cedar Ave. South), Minneapolis

  • Say NO to Islamophobia!

  • Say NO to the federal government’s attempts to divide the Somali community!

  • Say NO to Trump’s hate and fear mongering!

Join us for a rally and march to show the solidarity of Muslims and non-Muslims together to denounce the hate speech and hate crimes waged locally and nationally against Muslims.  Learn about CVE (Countering Violent Extremism), a divisive Department of Justice program that uses infiltrators, educators and social service non-profits to spy on and criminalize the Somali community.  Take action during this election season against the anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric from candidates and Donald Trump in particular!

We will start in front of May Day Books and march through the West Bank neighborhood to Seward where we will rally in front of the Republican Party headquarters (2200 E. Franklin Avenue) to denounce the Islamophobic message of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.  This protest is a part of a national call for a week of action issued by Stand Together Against Racism and Islamophobia and is co-sponsored by the MN Anti-War Committee and Minnesotans Against Islamophobia.
