Resist Trump’s Executive Orders

The Trump administration is turning the bigoted rhetoric of his presidential campaign into bigoted policy, less than a week into holding office. The proposed ban on Muslims and shut down of our borders are the first steps in a Trump-era agenda that criminalizes entire communities based on their nationality and origin.

We are resisting. 

  • We participated in the Women’s March this past Saturday in Santa Ana where more than 20,000 people reportedly attended joining close to 3 million people nationwide in a show of unity against hate and bigotry. Our vice chair Mirvette Judeh-Maaytah was one of the featured speakers at the event. Watch her electrifying speech here.
