We All Belong Statewide Vigil: Chattanooga, Knoxville & Nashville

Home/Events/We All Belong Statewide Vigil: Chattanooga, Knoxville & Nashville

 

During his first week in office, President Trump signed an executive order putting a moratorium on all refugee resettlement and banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Despite defeats in the courts and resistance in the streets, the president hasn’t given up on his extreme campaign promises. Last month, Trump announced he would lower the number of refugees to be resettled next year to 45,000 – the lowest number in the program’s history and he issued a third version of the Muslim Ban.

On October 18th, the day Muslim Ban 3.0 was set to go into effect before a federal judge halted it, join the ACLU of TN, the American Muslim Advisory Council, and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition for a series of statewide vigils to say #NoMuslimBanEver and #RefugeesWelcome.
