(ST. LOUIS, MO, 4/30/2017) – On Monday, May 1, the Missouri chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Missouri) will join a “No Bans, No Walls, No Hate, Love All” rally organized by the St. Louis chapter of Indivisible in front of Senator Roy Blunt’s state office to support justice for immigrants and refugees.
WHAT: No Bans, No Walls, No Hate, Love All Rally
WHERE: Roy Blunt’s Office, 7700 Bonhomme Ave Ste 315, St. Louis 63105
WHEN: Monday, May 1, 5 p.m.
"The current administration's demonization of immigrants is unethical and un-American," said CAIR-Missouri Executive Director Faizan Syed. "We believe Senator Blunt’s silence on this issue is unacceptable.”
The program will include a rally in front of Senator Blunt's office, along with a delegation of ten community leaders who will visit the Senator's staff. A CAIR-Missouri representative will join the Missouri delegation while Syed will meet with Blunt's staff in Washington, D.C., on Monday.
"St. Louis should be a freedom city for immigrants and refugees," said CAIR-Missouri Communication Intern Neveen Ayesh. "Senator Blunt should remember the example of the Bosnians who helped rebuild St. Louis and became an integral part of our community."
