On Monday, October 16th, young women activists from the Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) will present “Stomp Out the Muslim Ban!”, an art protest and dance rally at Brooklyn Borough Hall in response to the current presidential administration’s travel ban, now in its third iteration, targeting individuals from 6 Muslim-majority countries, as well as Venezuela and North Korea.

“Stomp Out the Muslim Ban!” will feature a large-scale projection onto Brooklyn Borough Hall’s exterior of a video created by young Arab women showcasing dabkeh, a form of Arab step dancing. The video projection will be accompanied by a rally in which girls and young women are invited to share the impact the Ban and anti-Muslim bigotry has had on them and their communities. “Stomp Out the Muslim Ban!” will close with a performances from dance groups standing in solidarity against the ban, and a group dabke dance, celebrating Arabic culture while protesting bigotry.

The event is held in partnership with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC)’ TAKE ON HATE Campaign and The Illuminator an art-activist collective. This event is in cooperation with the national #NoMuslimBanEver Campaign, a grassroots awareness and mobilization effort happening in the weeks leading up to and on October 18, 2017, when the newest Muslim Ban goes into effect.
