On Saturday afternoon, the Missouri chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MO) is hosting a protest in response to the Trump Administration’s announced anti-immigration orders, which temporarily bans immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
The event will start at 1 p.m. at the Federal Court House downtown (111 S. 10th St) for a rally, with tables set up for voter registration and signatures on letters to elected officials. Speeches from various interfaith, civil rights and legal figures will begin at 1:30. The march itself begins at 2 p.m., followed by a rally at the Arch.
As of Friday afternoon, more than 1,500 people indicated on Facebook they were interested in attending.
Also of note: Tonight, CAIR-MO is hosting a panel in Ballwin to discuss the recent executive orders, with attorneys present to answer any legal questions. And for an opportunity to learn more about what CAIR-MO is doing, an open house will welcome newcomers to their new office on Clayton Road on Sunday, February 19.
