The entire Dallas refugee resettlement committee is calling for your presence this Monday night in response to the latest iteration of the Muslim ban. We will be joined by Dallas County Judge Clay Lewis Jenkins, elected officials, immigration attorneys, refugee agencies, faith leaders, and more. Please join and spread the word. With Trump’s dangerous refugee ban 3.0 and security policies going into effect, our incoming refugee populations find themselves threatened, and the entire refugee program faces threat of being dismantled.

We are coming together, alongside our allies at “In Their Own Voices” podcast, the International Rescue Committee (and other major refugee service organizations in the DFW) Faith Forward Dallas, and CAIR-DFW to hold a press conference in which we will state, plainly and clearly, the facts surrounding Trump’s proposed policies, how they will affect the work that organizations like IRC does, and what affect they will have on incoming refugees, potential refugees, and refugees who are already here. Immediately afterwards, we will hold a vigil and rally, featuring dynamic speakers, in order to show our unity and our support for our refugee communities.

Signs are welcome, so long as they remain appropriate.
