Friends,

We realize there has been a lot of constantly changing information already out there about the upcoming rally this Saturday, 6/10 in Seattle, by Act for America, recognized by Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group (now slated to take place at Seattle City Hall plaza, 600 4th Avenue). While faith leaders have been involved in conversations with an ad hoc group planning a counter presence this Saturday, FAN, the Church Council of Greater Seattle, and other faith organizations have decided not to sign on organizationally.

While solidarity with our Muslim neighbors has been lifted up as a primary value in planning for the counter-presence there, we realize that there will be a diversity of voices and expressions in how that counter-presence manifests itself, which may or may not be consistent with public vigils that local faith communities have traditionally convened.  We appreciate the significant thoughtfulness and conversation in planning among people and groups, some of whom have been meeting for the first time. That being said, we want to share some options for faith community members who will participate downtown or who choose to express solidarity in other ways.
