Organizer/Authorcoalition
Join us in this CELEBRATION of diversity, acceptance and inclusion, as we gather to show the world that we will not accept any form of hate in our district.

WHY: A group called ACT FOR AMERICA has chosen Santa Clara as one of its locations across the country to stage an anti-Muslim demonstration. The group has been classified as a HATE GROUP, and has made it their mission to villainize Muslims, building a platform to perpetuate and promote the most hateful language imaginable.

WE WILL NOT ACCEPT HATE IN OUR COMMUNITY!

WHAT: We are calling on activists and allies from the region to come together for peaceful Unity Rally. We will show our support for people of every race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, color, ethnicity, and ability.

HOW:
- Wear white
- Wear flowers
- Bring flowers to give away
- Bring American flags!
- Make LARGE white signs with BOLD black letters
- Signs should be POSITIVE
- Signs should show what we believe IN

PLEASE visit the FB page and click the "GOING" button if you will come, and come back often for updates.
