#REPEALTHEBAN

The #NoMuslimBanEver campaign is organized by dozens of organizations across the United States including MPower Change, the MASA Organizing team, Asian Americans Advancing Justice –Asian Law Caucus, and Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)’s San Francisco-Bay Area chapter.

The purpose of the campaign is to make it clear that the Muslim and refugee bans are discriminatory, unconstitutional and inhumane in the same vein as the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Japanese American incarceration, and special registration after 9/11.

Led by the communities it serves, The Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans - PANA, amplifies refugee voices to increase their visibility and impact. We do this by using community organizing and leadership development to achieve policy wins and better access to justice for our most marginalized families. PANA also provides support to communicates directly affected by the Muslim Ban, including nationals from Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. We are building a more powerful movement community of former refugee and newcomer families better equipped to take on rising authoritarianism and inequity.

Campaign Principles

End Criminalization

End policies, like bans, walls and raids, that treat our communities as inherently suspect and foster bigotry and hate.

Expand sanctuary

Create safe spaces for people under threat by advocating for sanctuary policies, supporting sanctuary communities, and offering physical sanctuary.

Center directly impacted people

Center communities directly affected by the Muslim and refugee bans, namely Muslims, refugees, and nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Build solidarity

The Muslim and refugee bans are on a continuum of exclusionary policies, White supremacy, xenophobia and racism. We are stronger when we understand these connections and work together.
