The #NoMuslimBanEver rally was about showing Trump and everyone who’s watching: Muslim communities are organized, mobilized, and won’t be pushed around — and our allies have our back.

But as we’ve seen over these past nine months, they’re relentless in coming up with new ways to target Muslims — and that means that we can’t stop fighting back.

That means that when they try to exclude people from the country based just on their religion — we stand up and demand No. Muslim. Ban. Ever.

It means that when they repeal DACA and call for mass deportations — we organize with our undocumented community members and protect each other.

It means that when they target the poor, the differently-abled, indigenous communities, women, LGBTQ folks— or anyone who doesn’t look or pray the way they do — we get together and call for dignity and equal rights for all.

It means that we do whatever we can, as individuals and by working together — whether it’s signing petitions, making calls to Congress, or making financial contributions.

Trump has been rolling out the Muslim Bans since his inauguration — a series of policies rooted in hate and xenophobia. Every single time a new Ban was issued, we came out by the thousands to airports, in the streets, and across courtrooms to shut it down.

Whether there’s a Muslim Ban 4.0 or 5.0, we’ll never stop fighting until we achieve dignity and justice — for all of our communities.
