…We are not just advocating for issues relevant to our own communities. We are pushing America to live up to its own ideals both at home and abroad.
We demand an end to our government’s assistance in war crimes and atrocities that violate international law. We demand our government fight the proliferation of hatred and bigotry throughout the world. We demand an end to the oppression, discrimination, and disenfranchisement. To support these demands, sign our action alert.
If American Muslims want to live in a country that upholds justice here and advances justice abroad, we must always continue to work for it.
