NYC COALITION TO STOP ISLAMOPHOBIA
JOINS THE LOCAL MUSLIM COMMUNITY TO
SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SHEEPSHEAD BAY MOSQUE/COMMUNITY CENTER
When: Sunday, March 13, 2011
ARRIVAL TIME: 12 noon
Where: Voorhies Avenue Between E. 28th and E. 29th Streets
Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn
Join a diverse coalition of New Yorkers, led by the local Sheepshead Bay Muslim Community, for a rally in support of the continuing construction of the Sheepshead Bay Mosque/Community Center. Once again the anti-Muslim forces led by BayPeople Inc. plan to protest the construction of the Voorhies Avenue Mosque.
AND ONCE AGAIN we plan to wholeheartedly show our support for our Muslim sisters and brothers. We support the right of every person to practice their religion freely and oppose all attempts to demonize and defame New York’s Muslim, Arab and Asian communities.
We stand together as one borough and one city. This comes at a time when the Peter King hearings have caused more fearmongering throughout the country!
Stand with us as we say NO to anti-Muslim bigotry in Brooklyn and in all of New York!
Signs will be available but please feel free to bring your own.
Directions: (Q train to to Sheepshead Bay/East 16 Street then walk 12 blocks along Voorhies Ave.
No B train on the weekend.
B36 bus to Avenue Z and East 28th Street, then walk down East 28th to Voorhies)
