San Francisco Board of Supervisors Refuses to Make Muslim Registry

San Francisco's Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance prohibiting the city using any resources to create, implement, provide investigation or information for, to enforce, or otherwise assist or support any government program requiring the registration of individuals on the basis of religion, national origin, or ethnicity, or creating a database of individuals on the basis of religion, national origin, or ethnicity. 

What a wonderful example of what we can work for in our cities and counties!

The news clip below gives a clear and strong outline of the ordinance.  (Sabiha Basrai, the person being interviewed, is the daughter of MVPJ Steering Committee members, too!)

If you are aware of efforts to make your city a Sanctuary city or pass similar ordinances, please let us know!
