Hosted by US Bank.
U.S. Bank is hosting a free Eid al-ahda celebration for our Muslim friends and neighbors. Hateful rhetoric has been rampant on social media and we need to step up to show our support.
In addition to locking arms and raising signs showing our support, we are invited to join the celebration after prayer ends later in the morning.
Ideally, we'd have the most people there early in the morning to shelter our friends and neighbors as they enter the stadium and between noon and 1 when people are leaving the celebration. Support throughout the morning is also welcome.
There will be significant security at this event, so safety should not be an issue. However, the safety of our Muslim friend and neighbors is of primary importance.
Please join us to show support. Meet at the plaza area on 4th and Chicago. Bring signs showing support if you can.
A couple places to get signs:
This event is a radical act of love. In solidarity with our Muslim friends and neighbors, let's wish them Eid Mubarak by demonstrating we have their backs.
