Our country is a nation of diverse communities with people of all identities and backgrounds. Through our constitution and our core American values of freedom and equality, we promise to protect all people no matter their ethnicity, race, faith, sexual orientation, or gender. When these values are not upheld, we must call out the hate and discrimination and stand up for those who are unjustly targeted.

In this country, we do not ban, register, or deport people based on their background or identity. We are better than state-sanctioned bigotry.Read more

The individuals selected to the Trump cabinet express inherent opposition to the core American values of equality and justice. This dangerous group supports policies that intend to demonize, vilify and criminalize Americans, including those who are Arabs, Muslims and immigrants or refugees. We must remember that a threat to one community’s civil liberties is a threat to all. The U.S. government must respect and protect all Americans and not unethically exclude certain communities.
