Sat, Jun 10th 11am-3pm
In response to the anti-Muslim rallies taking place across the country on June 10th, there will be a counter-protest at the State Capitol organized by a number of groups dedicated to fighting bigotry and racism.
Click here to go to their Facebook event page for the event.
As stated by Counter Protest organizers, “Join us in showing support for our Muslim neighbors and opposing anti-Muslim bigotry outside the State Capitol at 11:00am. Together we can outnumber, drown out the racists, and rally as a progressive community to appreciate our religious, racial, and national diversity and oppose these kinds of anti-Muslim and racist actions in the future.”
CAIR-MN and others are suggesting that an alternative to attending the counter-protest (and possibly drawing more attention to the message of the anti-Muslim protestors) is to join the Unity Iftar in the evening. This breaking fast celebration of food, community and togetherness will send a strong message that Minnesota stands united against hate. Click here for more information.
