#NoBanNoWall | Defending Immigrants & Muslim Rights (Jan. 29)


Let’s stand together to protect and preserve human rights. Our immigrant, refugees and Muslim brothers and sisters are becoming target of the national hate politics looking to first cause division and confusion in our cities. Join us for a deep conversation about the role of municipalities and their capacity to create policy and strategies to defend and protect our immigrant, refugees and Muslim communities. United We Stand! This is an open forum for community members, elected officials and legal experts.
