George Takei fights back against #MuslimBan

After being forced into a Japanese internment camp as a child, George Takei vowed to never allow this travesty to happen to another group of Americans again. Following President Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from 7 Muslim-majority countries, Mr. Takei launched an online petition calling on Americans to “stand up for Muslims in the U.S.” The petition has been signed by nearly 320,000 people.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and other civic leaders joined George Takei to present the list of supporters to MPAC President Salam Al-Marayati as a gesture of support to Muslims from fellow Americans.

We are grateful to George and to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who stand for a united and inclusive America. Our work does not end here. MPAC will present these signatures to Congress to advocate for the civil liberties of American Muslims.
