CAIR-San Diego, Community Partners to Unite Against Violence and Seek Justice for Nabra

screenshot 2017 07 03 07 12 33(SAN DIEGO, CA, 7/2/17) – On Monday, July 3, the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic-Relations (CAIR San Diego) will join community partners at a news conference and vigil in honor of Nabra Hassanen. This event is seeking justice for Nabra and uniting the community against violence.

Please join us in uniting together in love and solidarity during a vigil in honor of Nabra Hassanen. Nabra Hassenen, a 17 year old Muslim teenager, was violently assaulted and murdered on June 18th 2017. While her case has been ruled not to be a hate crime, it has occurred in a period of rampant and increasing attacks against Muslims and other minority groups. Groups and individuals motivated by right wing and islamophobic ideology have become emboldened by the rhetoric and policies Trump’s nationalist right wing administration.

Organizations: Council on American Islamic Relations San Diego (CAIR SD), Muslim Student Association (MSA), San Diego International Socialist Organization (ISO), Activist San Diego (ASD). Endorsed by: PANA, SDIRC, Alliance SD.

The 6/26 Supreme Court partial lift on the travel ban will only fuel this dangerous trend. We recognize that the whole community must stand in solidarity against both street based and institutionalized racist violence in order to defeat it. We hope you join us in coming together to discuss actions we can take collectively to help build city and solidarity.
