As a grassroots organization committed to establishing communities that are racially, culturally and socially integrated and truly inclusive, we deplore the president’s unconstitutional executive order banning the entry of Muslims to this country. Mindful of the world in which we live, we are firmly committed to standing with our sisters and brothers from all faith communities and national origins who seek a haven in the US or who are trying to return to the place they’ve called home for years. We must never forget that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
