Taking A Stand And Taking Action!
PARISOMA was started by immigrants. It has always been a home to immigrants and faiths from all around the world, and will always be a home for them.
We strongly oppose the Trump administration's executive order banning immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries. We believe it is an affront to all immigrants, regardless of nation, and is not what we, or this country, stands for. We strongly believe in and stand by, our core values of openness, diversity, and inclusiveness. We will support our members, community, staff and partners who are affected in any way we can.
On February 15th, we will host an event to benefit the ACLU of Northern California, with speakers dedicated to the topics of knowing your rights and how these actions affect immigrants from all nations. Stay tuned for more details next week.
You will see ongoing action from us too. We welcome anyone looking to become more involved, whether as a partner, volunteer, host an event in our space, and more.
PARISOMA will continue to stand up against other actions that we believe are wrong and unconstitutional. #nobannowall
