We join with the U.S. Federation of Sisters of St. Joseph in Objecting Supreme Court Decision to Uphold Travel Ban
Join us by taking action to let those in charge know we will not stand for the discrimination of our Muslim “dear neighbors”. Please contact your Senators and Representatives at 202-224-3121 and ask them to oppose the administration’s travel ban that discriminates against Muslims. You will need to call the number a total of three times to be connected with your two Senators and one Representative.
A sample script for your phone call is below:
“Hello. My name is (NAME) and I am your constituent from (CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE), and I urge you to OPPOSE the administration’s travel ban that discriminates against Muslims. I urge you to do everything in your power to see that the administration rescind the executive order. As a person of faith, I stand opposed to actions, either via executive order or legislation, that ban Muslims, refugees or immigrants from entering this country based on where they come from or what faith they practice. The travel ban does not represent the welcoming communities across the United States. I urge Congress to exert oversight and accountability over the administration and ensure no federal taxpayer dollars are used to implement the travel ban targeted toward Muslims. My community welcomes our immigrant, refugee, and Muslim neighbors and I call on you to do the same. Thank you.”
