On Thursday, March 10, US Congressman Peter King (R-NY) will convene hearings to examine “the extent of the radicalization of American Muslims.” While King claims that these hearings are vital to our nation’s national security, many Americans of all walks of life fear that these hearings will stir up anti-Muslim sentiment throughout out country.
Please take a stand against anti-Muslim bigotry and all forms of racism by calling on Congressman King to cancel these hearings.
