Broadway Bikes proudly supports and operates in the sanctuary city of Cambridge, MA. Today we confirm that support by lending our voice to United We Dream and the 80,000 immigrant youth under the DACA program. Here’s how you can help:
Call your representative and two senators and ask them to co-sponsor S.1615 in the Senate and H.R. 3591 in the House to permanently protect DACA youth. This takes 2 minutes! You can use 5calls.org to quickly get your members of congress contact info and scripts. Here’s an explainer to get you started on understanding the issue and these bills.
Last Friday was the holiday Eid al-Adha, a time of celebration and reflection about love and sacrifice through the story of Abraham. For those not in the Muslim community, it is additionally an opportunity to think about solidarity and the resistance to Islamophobia. No matter your religious or spiritual beliefs, let this Eid remind us to have collective faith in our resistance and stand united against hate. To our Muslim community we say (belated) Eid Mubarak!
Check out The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to educate yourself about Muslim traditions, Islamophobia, and support their work.
