NYC SAys welcome to Refugees

On Thursday, December 10, AAANY stood alongside other NYC organizations in Columbus Circle to show solidarity with Iraqi and Syrian refugees in face of the recent opposition to allow Syrian and Iraqi refugees in the United States. The rally named "Human Rights Trumps Oppression" focused on denouncing the hateful rhetoric of presidential candidate Donald Trump, as well as other Republican candidates who have made Islamophobic remarks over the course of their campaigns. As a result of the racist comments made by the GOP, Anti-Muslim attacks and Islamophobia have increased all over NYC.
