On June 10th, an Islamophobic hate group plans to hold anti-Islam protests across the country, including a rally in Atlanta. While extremists seek to divide Atlanta with hate, Georgia's Muslim community welcomes you to unite our diverse community in service.
Join us this Saturday, June 10th, at 11 am in Atlanta for "No To Extremism & Bigotry, Yes To Service & Unity," an interfaith gathering where people of all faiths and backgrounds can collectively "repel evil with good."
We encourage attendees to bring nonperishable food items, which we plan to collect and donate to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. During the event, faith leaders and community partners also plan to deliver remarks about what inspires them ...to serve their neighbors.
We also hope to honor the memory of those recently killed in the Portland attack and other hate crimes here at home, as well as extremist attacks overseas.
We plan to hold the outdoor event in the rear courtyard of Al-Farooq Masjid, which is located at 442 14th Street, Atlanta, GA.
Contact Ruwa Romman of CAIR Georgia (Rromman@cair.com) if your organization or house of worship can attend, donate and/or speak at the gathering.
