Speak Out: Solidarity Space on the Immigration Executive Order
President Trump issued a new executive order on immigration on March 6th, 2017. In addition to requiring a 120-day ban on Syrian refugees, this order prevents visitors from six Muslim-majority countries (Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Syria, Libya, and Yemen) who do not have prior US visa or residency status. The executive order unjustly targets citizens from Muslim-majority countries, restricts people's movements, and puts at stake the lives of many traveling or seeking refuge. This order affects members of the Colgate community.
If you are interested in speaking up or sharing your emotions and thoughts about the executive order, please feel free to come to Chapel Basement on Thursday, March 9th at 8:30 pm. This event aims to create a safe, supportive space where people can express feelings about the executive order, listen, and stand in solidarity with those affected.
All are welcome.
