Somerset County Rally Supporting Immigrant & Muslim Communities

February 4, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

As the shockwaves of President Trump’s Executive Order banning refugees continue to spread throughout the nation, we as a country, and especially as a county, are reminded of the power of standing united against hate, and the importance of speaking up against a policy that is inherently un-American.

Join us this Saturday at 5:30 pm at the Somerset County Court House. There will be a rally and candlelight vigil in support of Somerset Counties immigrant and Muslim communities. I hope you can join us. For more information and to RSVP, please click here.
