March Against Sharia -- March for Human Rights



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ACT FOR AMERICA DISAVOWS ROGUE VOLUNTEER ORGANIZER

(WASHINGTON, DC, 6/8/2017) -- ACT for America cancelled its June 10th “March Against Sharia, March for Human Rights” event in Arkansas when we became aware that the organizer is associated with white supremacist groups. This is against all of our values.

We have since learned that the organizer may go forward with an event anyway – billing it as a “March Against Sharia” event. Any event held by this individual is not sanctioned by ACT for America, and is not supported or endorsed by ACT for America in any manner.  We regret any confusion that this individual’s actions may cause, and are working with our counsel to demand he cease and desist promotion of his event in a way that will confuse it as being sanction or approved by us.

We stand firmly opposed to any actions by individuals or organizations that seek to attack or intimidate based on race, religion, or sexual orientation.  Our June 10th nationwide marches are in support of basic human rights for all – and against the horrific treatment of women, children, and members of the LGBTQ community that is sanctioned by Sharia law.

ACT for America has never, and will never, tolerate any bias, discrimination, or violence against anyone, based on their religion, gender, race, or political persuasion.  Freedom to practice one's religion in peace is afforded to each of us by the U.S. Constitution and we will continue to defend it vigorously.

On Saturday, June 10, 2017, ACT for America is having March Against Sharia events in cities across the nation.

This is a march against Sharia law and for human rights. Our nation is built on the freedom of religion -- a pillar of our democracy -- which we must always respect, protect, and honor. However many aspects of Sharia law run contrary to basic human rights and are completely incompatible with our laws and our democratic values.

We, at ACT for America, are committed to protecting women and children from Sharia Law and its impact on Muslim women and children including honor killing and Female Genital Mutilation. We must ensure that every woman and child enjoy the protection afforded by the U.S. Constitution.

Below is information about why Sharia is incompatible with Western democracy and the freedoms it affords, as well as the addresses for each march location, including a link to the Facebook event.

Please share this information with your family, friends, and mark your calendars for Saturday, June 10. #MarchAgainstSharia

Thank you for taking action! Together, we are making a difference.
