FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER — Attend a June 30 Event!; We must all stand with Muslims NOW
A federal judge ruled against Trump's family separation policy—but we know the administration will fight back. We have momentum and we cannot slow down now since the the court ruling along isn't enough and could be overturned. Our mobilization, in over 600 locations around the country and still growing, is critical to showing the widespread public demand for just immigration policies—because families belong together ... and free!
Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics.
Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
If there's not an event near you, keep checking back or create an event at the link below.
The executive order that Donald Trump signed is not a solution to the crisis created by his administration; it keeps kids imprisoned indefinitely, and doesn't reunite thousands of separated families. But it does show the administration is reacting to public pressure, so we will continue to increase our pressure for justice at hundreds of events on Saturday, June 30, to say that families belong together—and free.

SUPREME COURT NEWS: We must all stand with Muslims NOW
By Linda Sarsour
June 26, 2018
The Supreme Court just ruled—in a historic blow to civil rights, the U.S. Constitution, and the most basic human decency—to maintain Trump’s racist and immoral Muslim Ban.
This is a pivotal moment for our movement, and an emergency that requires solidarity right now. Whether we identify as Muslims, or as non-Muslim allies, we must stand together.
We know what this administration stands for: fear, bigotry, and tearing apart families and communities—whether it’s at the border or through policies like the Muslim Ban. We need to show them—loudly and clearly—what we stand for.
Rather than reinforcing the notion that the U.S. should welcome people regardless of where they were born, what they look like, or how they worship, the Supreme Court instead upheld a Ban, driven by anti-Muslim sentiment, that shuns these values.
This isn’t the first time that the Supreme Court made a historic error and sealed its legacy as siding with the forces of racism and bigotry. In the Dred Scott case, the Court ruled in favor of slavery. In Korematsu, they ruled in favor of incarceration based on ethnicity, allowing Japanese-American incarceration.
In this case, Trump explicitly set out to ban Muslims—and the highest level of our judiciary just allowed it to happen, giving this and future administrations the green light to discriminate on the basis of religion. The Justices who ruled in favor of Trump will have to live with the weight of that upon their consciences, and their legacies for generations to follow. We don’t have to—and we don’t intend to.
The fight for religious freedom does not end here. The right to live in peace and be treated justly no matter one’s race, ethnicity, or religion is too important to let one person, one administration, or one decision destroy it.
We will continue to fight for our families and communities, to pursue legal avenues, and to demand that legislators take action to end the Muslim Ban.
Most importantly, we will continue organizing, mobilizing, and defending our communities from bigoted policies—whether they are endorsed by the Supreme Court or not.
We’ve created StandWithMuslims.com as a gateway to easily get plugged into that organizing, mobilization, and defense.
If you’ve ever talked about the need to resist Trump’s bigotry, know that this is the moment you must stand up and be counted.
