Shoulder to Shoulder in Solidarity, in response to “Punish a Muslim Day”

S2S.jpgWe are alarmed by the recent wave of anti-Muslim flyers, promoting “Punish a Muslim Day” on April 3, that have raised fears in several US cities and on social media, after they originally surfaced in London. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors against any and all acts of hate speech and violence, and reiterate the commitment of religious groups from across the spectrum to working together for inclusive and respectful communities.

Hate has no home in the United States, and no one should fear for their safety because of how they look, where they come from, or how they pray. Together, we must work to uphold our national ideals of dignity, equality, and religious freedom for all.
