Stop the spread of hate!

51 BIG CORPORATIONS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO ANTI-MUSLIM HATE

United_states_of_islamaphobia-v3

One year ago, the highest court in the United States made discrimination against Muslims the official law of the land with its decision to uphold Trump’s Muslim ban. The Supreme Court’s endorsement of anti-Muslim bigotry had heartbreaking consequences for the thousands of families that were separated, denied lifesaving medical treatment, or sent to their deaths in countries they had fled because of persecution. While devastating, the Supreme Court decision on the Muslim ban was hardly unexpected or unprecedented. Attacks on Muslims and communities mistakenly perceived as Muslim have always been commonplace in this country, going back to the arrival of the first ships carrying enslaved Muslims on this continent.

There is a long history of discrimination and bigotry against Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities in the United States, and corporations have played a key role in spreading it. It's time to take action and tell these major corporations to stop spreading anti-Muslim hate.

Tech corporations like Google and Amazon provide a platform for anti-Muslim bigotry. Right-wing media conglomerates like News Corp and the Sinclair Broadcast Group are regular purveyors of anti-Muslim content to the masses. Wall Street firms like Wells Fargo, Fidelity, and Vanguard help finance anti-Muslim corporations and hate groups. Oil companies and defense contractors like Halliburton and ExxonMobil profit from war and political turmoil in the Muslim world. Corporations like Caterpillar, Peabody Energy, and Raytheon are complicit in the ongoing genocide of the Palestinian, Uyghur, and Yemeni peoples. The political action committees and executives of corporations like Koch Industries and Walmart donate millions to anti-Muslim politicians. These corporations are all complicit in the rise of anti-Muslim hate crimes, violence, and bigotry in the United States. Their actions are all prelude to the Supreme Court ruling on the Muslim ban.

Sign the petition and then read about the corporations in every state contributing to anti-Muslim hate.

To mark the first anniversary of the Muslim ban decision, we bring you this map exposing anti-Muslim corporations in every state in the US and Washington, DC. These are the corporations that created the conditions that made last year’s Supreme Court ruling possible.

An attack on the MASA community is an attack on us all. We demand that these corporations cease any and all contributions to the anti-Muslim hate in this country IMMEDIATELY.

In peace and solidarity,

ACRE and Crescendo
