City Council Vows to Fight Islamophobia in Philadelphia

Thursday, January 26, 2017

In the wake of Presidential action that targeted refugees and immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries, on Thursday, January 26, City Council voted on a resolution which commits to “upholding City of Philadelphia’s support for and protection of Muslim communities, condemning violence and hate speech targeted towards Muslims, affirming the religious pluralism of the United States, and urging Philadelphia residents to stand in solidarity with our American Muslim communities - and all other communities - for peace and justice.”

 

In advance of the Council’s meeting , Council members, community leaders, allies, and members of the Religious Leaders Council hosted a press conference to discuss the City’s commitment to all its residents as well as their response to the barrage of anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim announcements coming out of the new administration.

 

Thank you to Imam Kenneth Nuriddin and The Very Reverend Judith Sullivan for representing the Interfaith Center and the Council at this important event.
