Repeal the Ban!

(Special Thanks to Aneelah Afzali for today's action)

Hello Friends,

For two years, the Muslim Travel Ban has deeply and adversely affected individuals and communities, tearing apart families. After the horrible U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Muslim Ban, the ball is now in the hands of Congress. Fortunately, the NO BAN Act will be introduced in both the Senate and the House on April 10, and it will repeal the Muslim Ban and create new standards to stop such discriminatory bans in the future. I'm hoping you will please sign on in support of the NO BAN Act! There is both an individual form, and an organization letter.


You can sign on as an individual in support of the NO BAN Act, using this form by MPower Change.

Deadline is April 9. Please share this link broadly to your networks, including on social media and listservs.

Thank you in advance for your support, and for taking action to uphold religious freedom for all and keeping families together.

In solidarity,

Aneelah Afzali

Executive Director, American Muslim Empowerment Network

Sample Script

“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent from [CITY, ZIP]. I am calling to tell [MoC] to cosponsor and publicly support the NO BAN Act, which would repeal Trump's Muslim, asylum, and refugee bans—and limit the statutory authorities used by the administration to enact them. No one should be blocked from entering the country just because of their religion or where they come from. More than two years after Trump enacted his first ban, a Muslim Ban is still in place and still tearing apart families and communities. It's time for Congress to act and repeal the ban”
