Join White Noise Collective and allies Thursday evening to stand in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors and in solid opposition to hate.
RI says NO! to Trump's Muslim Ban
65 David Gavitt Way, Providence, RI (on the sidewalk)
Join us in expressing our outrage to the new version of the Muslim Ban signed this week. To be clear, this is no "upgrade". Trump's new executive order is:
✅ Still a Muslim ban
✅ Still Islamophobic
✅ Still going to tear families apart
✅ Still unjust
✅ Still an attack on immigrants and refugees
✅ Still not going to make Americans safer
Let's keep fighting back! Join us in standing out in support and solidarity with our Muslim friends and neighbors and stand in solid opposition to the Ban which is set to take effect in one week on March 16, 2017. Even though it won't be enforced until then, we will not put a hold on our anger and resistance.
We will be holding signs on the sidewalk during rush hour to be a visible and public opposition to 45's agenda. Bring a friend, bring a sign, bring your voice. We will meet in the plaza next to McVinney Auditorium and then spread down the sidewalk together from there.
We will have some extra signs and markers available, please bring additional materials if you can!
If you're looking for sign or chant ideas, here are the messages we're suggesting:
o No hate, No fear, [Refugees/Immigrants] are welcome here
o No ban, No wall, Sanctuary for all
o No Muslim ban
o Refugees welcome
o Silence is violence
o No ban on stolen land
o We reject Trump's Muslim ban
o No ban, no registry, no more white supremacy
And if you want to help people connect with SURJ and future actions:
o White people: help end our legacy of violence. Text RESIST to 82623 to get involved!
o White folks - our work isn't over. Join SURJ by texting RESIST to 82623!
o White folks - join the resistance to Trump's agenda! Text RESIST to 82623 to join!
There are some signs we are asking people NOT to make:
x We are all immigrants - "We" are not all immigrants. Indigenous people have been on this land before it was invaded and colonized. This message erases them with the white-euro-centric history that history began with european invasion. Also many African people were forced to come here as slaves against their will, which is not the same as coming as an immigrant.
