Statement of Solidarity and Protest

As persons of faith representing diverse religious traditions and commitments, Multifaith Voices for Peace and Justice stands in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters and decries any effort to divide communities, intimidate adherents of Islam, and propagate hatred, racism, and disunity. Together with the Archbishop of Canterbury and other religious leaders throughout the world, we believe God calls on us to love one another and to support the flourishing of all peoples and nations on earth. 

We therefore call on the government of the United States and the President in particular to disavow the extremist propaganda of Britain First and other hate-mongering organizations. We urge Mr. Trump to remove his recent retweets of this group and make clear his opposition to all acts of bigotry and attempts to intimidate and increase divisions. We appeal to our government, faith communities, and all people to work ardently for healing, respect and unity.
