Get Organized BK! #RegisterMeFirst in Solidarity with Muslims (and more!)
As our allies and friends around the City continue to organize, we want to keep you posted on urgent actions and upcoming events.
President-elect Donald Trump wants to require all Muslims to register in a government database, violating civil rights and fundamental American Constitutional protections on freedom of religion. If he does, all of us – Jews, Christians, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics, and everyone else – must pledge to register as Muslims on day one. #RegisterMeFirst
I urge you to join me in pledging to sign up on the first day the registry is open, whatever our religion, ethnicity, national origin, or background, by signing this petition.
This Sunday (11/20): March in Solidarity with our Immigrant Neighbors
This Sunday, Councilmember Carlos Menchaca and our neighbors in Sunset Park have asked us to join them in a Day of Unity and Solidarity. Now more than ever we must stand with our immigrant friends, families and neighbors. I urge you to come join me for this event, to show your solidarity, lend support and stand up for NYC’s immigrant communities.
They will be gathering at noon at 5th Ave and 44th Street and marching to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church at 545 60th Street, where there will be Unity Festival with food, music and games kicking off at 1pm.
