March for America: Americans Against Terrorism, Hate and Gun Violence
Saturday, July 23, 2016
EVENT TYPE: Peace Rally
Enough is enough–is the theme of an interfaith, anti-violence march to be held Saturday, July 23, from 5:30-9:00 pm at the Capitol Building National Mall. A response to recent mass shootings in Orlando, Florida, and other acts of violence throughout the nation, the rally will show support for inclusiveness and mobilize against the rising tide of hate speech in American political discourse.
Organizers are hoping that “thousands of Americans will join together in national security and peace to demonstrate that America is stronger together and that we stand united for the security of our nation and in countering terrorism,” said Imam Muhammad Musri of American Islam. “When one person, one religion, one race is discriminated against, we are all discriminated against,” he added.
We call upon you and your community members to attend this historic event in Washington DC where all Americans can send a strong message to the rest of our nation and to the world that we stand united against terrorism, hate and gun violence.
Speakers will include WNDC President Nuchhi Currier.
