The International Rescue Committee in Atlanta is deeply grateful to the close to 300 people who joined them at the Atlanta airport last night to welcome one of the last refugee families to come to the U.S. before the full effect of the refugee ban takes place.
Now let’s keep it up and please join the entire community for the Atlanta Stands with Muslims & Refugees event tomorrow Saturday, February 4th from Noon to 3:00 p.m. at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer 731 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
DRESS COMFORTABLY! – Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny, but chilly. Be sure to dress warmly as the event is taking place OUTSIDE!
NO PARKING ON SITE. Carpool, bike, walk, or take MARTA. North Ave stop is two blocks away.
This will be a peaceful interfaith rally in solidarity with Muslims & refugees in Georgia. Come prepared with a personal letter about why you think a Muslim ban is un-American. Letters will be collected and delivered to the U.S. Department of State. See suggestions for a letter on the Facebook event page.
