Calls and Emails Into ING At 10x the Normal Volume Since the Immigration/Refugee Executive Order
There is no doubt that Islamophobia and xenophobia provided the context for the recent Executive Order; nearly 50% of Americans support it according to a Reuters poll, and therefore the increasing demand for ING’s work.
If you wish to support our work, we’ve created a quick one-stop shop for ways to do so with your time, talent, or treasure. We’d like to thank all of our friends and partners from many different faith or ethical traditions — especially secondary and higher education — for their commitment to peacebuilding and solidarity.
80 Faith-Based and Secular Organizations Sign
ING’s Know Your Neighbor Coalition Statement
Last Friday, the Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters campaign, a program of the Islamic Networks Group (ING), released a statement in reaction to executive orders signed by President Donald Trump that restrict immigration from a number of Middle Eastern and African countries. The statement implores government officials to reaffirm basic values that we share with the great majority of Americans like respect for religious freedom and caring for the stranger.
As of today over 80 interfaith organizations representing tens of thousands of American voices (some of whom are themselves refugees or immigrants) have signed onto our statement. We expect many more to sign soon.
You can read the full statement and find the list of signatories here. To sign on with your organization, contact Communications Manager Tim Brauhn at [email protected]
