Michigan stands in Unity against Hate, Xenophobia, and Islamophobia

On November 8th, 2017, as former Chief Strategist for President Trump Steve Bannon made his way to Michigan, Emgage lead an effort to organize an event in partnership with IONA, CAIR Michigan, ACLU Michigan, Women’s March Michigan, Michigan Muslim Community Council, Michigan United APIAVote Michigan, Take On Hate, and the Metro Detroit Political Action Network for elected officials, allies, and the community to stand in unity against hate, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. As a diverse crowd from different religions, ethnicity’s, and cultural backgrounds gathered it presented a positive message that in unity we can build a stronger future. Elected officials who spoke included State Representative Abdullah Hammoud, Senator Steve Bieda, and representatives from local offices, as well as candidates such as gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed. Emgage looks forward to working with allies to not only politically engage and educate the community, but to help bring forth policy efforts that will build a better Michigan for years to come.
