Together, we raise our voices to say: No Muslim Ban Ever.

The Trump administration continues to push white supremacist and exclusionary policies that discriminate on the basis of faith, national origin, and immigration status. We invite you to join us and declare #NoMuslimBanEver to raise awareness, resist and dismantle these policies.

About the campaign.

On December 4, 2017, the Supreme Court reinstated the Muslim Ban and lifted the injunctions granted by the Fourth and Ninth Circuits. Although the Supreme Court did not reach the merits of the Muslim Ban, it allowed the ban to take full effect. The Muslim Ban is the culmination of a long assault on Muslim communities, and the decision will inevitably embolden the President who continues to champion a white supremacist and Islamophobic agenda.

Just as we saw in January, when the ban first went into effect, it will defer dreams, separate families, deprive people of life saving health care, and block access to education. While we are still trying to understand the full implications of the order, advocates anticipate that CBP staff will interpret it broadly and overreach just as they have done in the past. Individuals from the six countries (Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen) traveling to the United States could face a range of challenges.

Campaign Principles

END CRIMINALIZATION

End policies, like bans, walls and raids, that treat our communities as inherently suspect and foster bigotry and hate.

EXPAND SANCTUARY

Create safe spaces for people under threat by advocating for sanctuary policies, supporting sanctuary communities, and offering physical sanctuary.

CENTER DIRECTLY IMPACTED PEOPLE

Center communities directly affected by the Muslim and refugee bans, namely Muslims, refugees, and nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

BUILD SOLIDARITY

The Muslim and refugee bans are on a continuum of exclusionary policies, White supremacy, xenophobia and racism. We are stronger when we understand these connections and work together.

RAISE YOUR VOICE

Share your values and stories to help shift public narratives and consciousness.

 

Campaign Messages

  • The Muslim Ban is the culmination of a long assault on Muslim communities.
     
  • Refugees are ordinary people fleeing extraordinary adversity, and denying them safety is to deny our common humanity.
     
  • Our communities want what everyone wants: freedom to proudly express our identities, including our faith, without fear of discrimination.
     
  • The Muslim and refugee bans are just one prong of Trump’s white nationalist agenda.
     
  • This ban has a real impact on families and community members.
     
  • The ban opens the door to other policies that discriminate on the basis of faith, immigration status, and national origin in particular eliminating DACA and increasing deportations. That is why we stand in solidarity with other communities of color, Native communities, immigrants and refugees.
