Solidarity Rally Sunday, Feb. 5

Dear Iowa community organizers,

In these challenging times, we urge Iowans to come together and speak out against the recent bigotry and hate towards immigrants and refugees. Organizing in support of these groups ensures we are a more united and unified country.

You are invited to the “Solidarity Rally” this Sunday, February 5th. The rally begins at 1:00pm in Iowa City’s Pedestrian Mall (201 Dubuque St, Iowa City, IA 52240) with speeches by Mayor Throgmorton, Sudanese community members, religious leaders, high school organizers, and others.

This event is cosponsored by PEACE Iowa, Arab American Institute, concerned Arab Americans, Muslims, Jews, Christians, and supporters, and Students Against Hate and Discrimination.

For more information, please contact Newman Abuissa newman@abuissa.net.

Have a good day. Best,

Joan Hanna
Community Relations and Programs Associate
Arab American Institute
