On Sunday, there was an amazing outpouring of support for our Muslim community in light of the “Muslim Ban” Executive Order. Now before some Trump fan decides to take me to task for the term “Muslim Ban” I’m just going to leave this right here.
While some of us couldn’t make it out to the protest out at SFO, a lot of Alamedans turned up to the Solidarity event that was thrown together in like less than 48 hours
It was quite impressive and it felt good to be around people who felt the same way about the direction that the country is going in presently. Some photos:
At the event I chatted with a former Ruby Bridges parent who was telling me that this event was the second in about two weeks that she had brought her children to. While it’s sad that our children are being exposed to so much to be disappointed about and to resist against, on the other hand this new generation is learning — very quickly — what it means to be active and pay attention.
At the rate that this administration is going, it might be time to invest in some high quality, multi-use protest signs. I have a feeling protesting will be a way of life like play dates and soccer practice.
