At this troubling time, we want to reach out to you to provide some thoughts and resources, as well as a call to action for current needs.
The Muslim Bar Association of New York strongly condemns and opposes the recent executive orders signed by President Trump. As a minority bar association, we pride in our nation's constitutional freedoms, which are sadly at high risk in current times. These actions by the government undermine our country's position as a global leader and erode the constitutional values that make America great. Our New York community has truly presented a shining example for the whole nation in opposing these orders and standing in the face of the new policies.
MuBANY remains fearlessly committed to fighting injustice with the power of good law and good people. We join hands and hearts with our brothers and sisters in the greater immigrant and minority communities from which we stem and which we serve. We commend you all and thank you for your unwavering support and commitment to fighting with us. We urge you to be present, speak up, and stand with us at this trying time.
As attorneys, we must recognize our privilege, our skills, and our resources and pool them together when they are needed the most.
