KC Rally for Muslims, Immigrants, and Refugees

KC Rally for Muslims, Immigrants, and Refugees

  • J C Nichols Parkway Kansas City, MO United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Supreme Court upheld Trump's Muslim Ban. While this isn't the first unjust law, the failure to protect vulnerable people from state-sanctioned discrimination and bigotry is unacceptable.

The KC Muslim Civic Initiative (MCI), Crescent Peace Society (CPS), and the KC American Coalition for Good Government are planning a rally in KC against the Muslim Ban. We call on the Muslim community and our allies to join us in a rally this Friday, from 6-8 PM at the Plaza Fountain.

Please bring signs!

Say "No" to Kobach And His Allies!

Say "No" to Kobach And His Allies!

NRA Board Member Ted Nugent is coming to Kansas to raise money for Kris Kobach's campaign.

Kris Kobach has proven himself catastrophic to everything he touches, from his incompetence at his current job where he has cost Kansas taxpayers by attempting to enact unconstitutional reforms, to voting rights, to his failures in his former job of losing immigration related court cases and enacting unconstitutional state legislation and local policies at the tax payer’s dime in Kansas, and other states near you.

Kobach believes he can raise money for his disastrous campaign unopposed but we Kansans will make sure that he and his allies know that we don't support his politics.
