We’re immigrants, refugees, people of color, U.S.-born citizens, rural Oregonians, LGBTQ folks, workers, students, moms, dads, grandparents and, most importantly, allies in the struggle for social justice.

Our values and traditions as a welcoming nation are being destroyed.
The Trump Administration just issued a Presidential Determination that reduced refugee admissions to the U.S. from 110,000 to 45,000, the lowest in our history. This is on the heels of a proclamation furthering the Muslim Ban, which prohibits immigration from eight mostly Muslim-majority countries. The Muslim Ban--like the lowered refugee cap, the DACA rescission, and the threat to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS)--are products of the nationalist ideology that criminalizes and demonizes immigrants, Muslims, and refugees.
On October 18, Unite Oregon joins with communities across the country to uphold our nation’s traditions of welcoming refugees and religious freedom. Come and show your solidarity with our Muslim sisters and brothers and with Oregon's refugee communities. Demonstrate that, in Oregon, we still value welcoming those fleeing violence and persecution. Join us and be heard! #NoMuslimBanEver #RefugeesWelcome
NOTE: THIS IS A PERMITTED RALLY
