details for Saturday's Not in Our Name March

An effort to address the issue of Muslim-owned liquor stores and the general proliferation of alcohol outlets in poor communities. Well over 80% of the 350 liquor stores in Oakland are owned or operated by “Muslims.” This march and rally is a mobilization of our community to send a strong message that we are outraged by the destructive and misrepresentative actions of our coreligionists and that we join allies from other groups in the struggle to create healthy and enriching neighborhoods. It is one step of many that are being and will be taken to affect a long-term and lasting redress of this issue.

* Gather at 11:00am – Defremery Park in Oakland (1651 Adeline, between 17th &18th)

* March to Frank Ogawa Plaza/City Hall (in front of City Hall at 14th St. & Broadway)

* Prayer & Rally at 12:30pm at Frank Ogawa Plaza (bring your own prayer rug)

Imam Faheem Shuaibe, Imam Zaid Shakir, Dr. Hatem Bazian, Imam Abu Qadir al-Amin, Dr. Mohammad Rajabally, & many others

Come out and support this effort to make a healthy contribution to the communities in which we live.

Organized and endorsed by a Coalition of Concerned Bay Area Muslims
