First Parish Sanctuary
Join the Social Action Committee Thursday, May 4 at 6 PM – 8 PM at the church, for a teach-in led by the Muslim Justice League (MJL), a Boston-based organization advocating for human and civil rights and civil liberties that are threatened under national security pretexts.
Topics will include the anticipated “Muslim registry” and revised “Muslim ban;” potential attempts to silence and criminalize Muslim civil society (including, for example, new “terrorist” designations); existing policies and campaigns that have targeted and harmed Muslim communities for years; and actions allies can take to meaningfully challenge state persecution of Muslim communities.
