Love Diversity / Hate Islamophobia Vigil

Sunday, February 14 from 5-6pm at the corner of Belknap St. and Hammond Ave. in Superior

The corporate media and some politicians on both sides of the aisle believe their interests can be advanced by scapegoating Muslims and refugees fleeing the endless U.S. supported wars in the Middle East. This past year has seen shameful Islamophobia spewing from Donald Trump to Bruce Hagen. To fight back against this hate, we have decided to hold a vigil on Valentine's Day to show our support for diversity and solidarity and our opposition to hate and fear mongering.

Join us from 5-6pm as we stand on the corner of Belknap St. and Hammond Ave. in front of the Government Center in Superior. Join us in standing for love and compassion on Valentine's Day!

This event is sponsored by the Twin Ports Break the Bonds Campaign - a Palestine solidarity group. It is also endorsed by Duluth/Superior Save the Kids, #PoliticsOffMyBody and Socialist Action. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Extra signs will be on hand, but feel free to make and bring your own. We hope to see you there!

FYI: This vigil is being held as part of a national wide week of action against Islamophia. To find out more about other actions around the country, check out
