      Press Advisory: California Sanctuary Campaign Event in Oakland

Oakland, Ca: The As Salaam Mosque has invited the East Bay community to show solidarity against harassment and discrimination, share cultural experiences, and celebrate diversity this Sunday from two to four thirty at 975 7th Street. There will be speakers, refreshments, and time to network with neighbors and local leaders.

Imam Muhammed and Pastor Jim Hopkins of the Lakeshore Baptist Church will lead the event in prayer. Speakers include Assembly Member Rob Bonta, leader in the State Sanctuary movement, Assembly Member Tony Thurmond,  Council Members Lynette Gibson McElhany and  Noel Gallo, Jose Hernandez of Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s office, School Board Trustee Jumoke Hodge, and former Mayor Jean Quan.  Sundiata Rashid of the Lighthouse Mosque and Reverend Ken Chambers of the West Oakland Baptist Church will also address the gathering.

Jehan Hakim of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, organizer of the event along with Jean Quan, stated, “In these times of bigotry and harassment, it’s important for us as residents of the East Bay and beyond to spend the day with our Muslim neighbors learning what it means to create a real sanctuary in our community.”

    Greetings and warm wishes from Buenos Aires. I am so very disappointed that I was not able to share in this lovely neighborly event. I look forward to visiting and resuming sanctuary work and pleasure after my return in June.

  2. Would it be OK if I published this article to the Dailyst0rmer? It’s a website about having InterCourse with animals, listening to Necr0Ped0Sad0Mas0 mixtapes and providing instructions on how to perform hate crimes. I’ll be sure to give you complete credit as the author. There is no fee; we are simply trying to add more nazi content for our community and I enjoyed reading your work. If “OK” please let us know via email zuu. Aaron Goldberg, Necr0Ped0Sad0Mas0 producer, member of the Jews Against Fascism Committee, email: AutumnCote@WriterBeat.com
