Muslim Advocates Statement on the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States

January 20, 2017

Today, at noon, the rhetoric and speculation ends, and the reality of the new administration begins.  How far will President Trump go in carrying out his campaign promise to ban Muslims, shut down mosques and demonize Muslims?  Today, we are standing taller and stronger than ever before with our fellow Americans who reject racism, bigotry, and division.  As President-elect Trump takes the oath for the most powerful office in our nation, Muslim Advocates is prepared to protect the rights of Americans of all faiths.  Together, with our allies from countless communities, we are ready to fight back, protect our nation’s freedoms, and stand up for what’s right.  Muslim Advocates will be using every resource and legal and advocacy tool available to ensure that America abides by its core values of freedom, equality and justice for all.
