We ask you to join us. We invite all members of the Seattle community to participate, regardless of political stance, religious affiliation, etc. We do ask that all participants respect the principles we are organizing around:Center the voices of Muslim communities. Don’t deconstruct and try to counter ACT’s points or automatically assume the defensive position. Build positive messages, we’re here to uplift, support, and work towards lasting unity. Avoid “Not all Muslim” type arguments- people deserve respect solely on the basis of their personhood. We don’t want to contribute to the idea that marginalized folks need to prove themselves first. Remember – these are our neighbors, friends, community members so give them the respect and space that’s due and also keep this in mind with your message.– Time: 9:00am – 2:00pm – Where: Occidental Square, 117 S Washington Street, Seattle, WA 98104.
