MPAC's Metro Ads in DC & NYC Receive Widespread Attention

November 16, 2012


For the past two weeks, MPAC has been running ads on the WMATA buses across the DC, Virginia and Maryland areas and in the New York City subway system calling upon all concerned citizens to stand together in opposing bigotry and hatred.

MPAC's ads read: "The Truly Civilized Man Fights for Peace. Support American Values. Defeat Racism and Bigotry," and are part of a campaign to counter the hateful and divisive ads released by anti-Muslim bigot Pamela Geller’s organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI). 

MPAC's ads promoting peace and tolerance have been gaining widespread attention, which could not have done without our donnor and supporters who made this possible. Many people on Facebook and Twitter have shared the campaign with their friends commenting that this is "MPAC's civilized response to the racist subway ad campaign."

“It is important  we counter such ads with messages of peace that are the true representation of what we stand for as Muslims,” said Salam Al-Marayati, MPAC’s President. “Today, America needs leadership to rise above racism and bigotry, and MPAC is playing that leadership role through these ads."

Support MPAC as we continue to stand up to injustice, hatred and intolerance. There is no room in our society for bigotry.
