ALL ARE WELCOME
ALL ARE WELCOME
Common Ground stands firm in its opposition to the Trump administration’s recent executive orders imposing a travel ban on Muslims from select countries, suspending the refugee program, threatening to withhold Federal funding for law enforcement from sanctuary cities, and rescinding the Obama administration’s guidance requiring transgender students receive access to restrooms of their chosen gender identity. These executive orders are in direct conflict with the values that define Common Ground and our community. Common Ground stands in solidarity with all those working to promote justice, equity, and inclusiveness by opposing oppression in all its forms. Finally, Common Ground is committed to performing its work with humanity, and with love for all of our community members regardless of where they come from, what religion they practice, or what their immigration status is.
