Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse, yesterday Trump issued executive actions against immigrants and refugees that repudiate all we are as a country. TODAY’s 5 Minute Action will no doubt be the first of many to show resistance to these ignorant and harmful orders.
If you are able to attend a rally planned around the country, thank you!
If not, here is TODAY’S 5 Minute Action thanks to the Civil Rights Coalition:
Step 1: Attend a “virtual march” on social media and Tweet a #SolidaritySelfie. If you don’t use Twitter, then post on Facebook. Go to Step 2 if you need another option for Action.
- Write a short note on a piece of paper – something like “Refugees Welcome,” “Here to Stay” or “I stand with Immigrants”
- Take a picture of yourself with the paper
- Tweet the photo of yourself along with a note. Make sure you include “@POTUS” and “#solidarityselfie” as below. When you type @POTUS, it will ask you to choose Obama or Trump; sadly, choose Trump.
Here are some great examples for entire Tweet or Facebook note:
Walls, division, bans don’t have a place in America. @POTUS seeks to divide us all. #SolidaritySelfie
Targeting Muslims goes against our core American values: freedom of religion, compassion, justice. #NoMuslimBan #SolidaritySelfie
America is better than this, @POTUS #NoMuslimBan #SolidaritySelfie
My America doesn’t turn its back on refugees in need @POTUS #SolidaritySelfie #RefugeesWelcome
Step 2: If you don’t use Twitter or Facebook, view this wonderful 5 Minute video and share with others via email by copying and pasting the link. Let them know that it is educational, inspiring and demonstrates that we are ALL CONNECTED!
We will be including this video with all immigration and refugee -related 5 Minute Actions. (Copy/paste this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fw7FhU-G1_Q)
