A rally will be held Sunday in San Francisco to support Muslims and encourage unity in the wake of recent attacks like the March 15 mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The rally, titled “Unity and Diversity: Civil Society Countering Islamophobia” is being organized by the Northern California Islamic Council and is sponsored by dozens of Bay Area civic groups and organizations.
The council is “committed to continuing to raise the alarm on Islamophobia so that this violence can be stopped once and for all. No one should have to fear that their prayers in their places of sanctuary could be targeted by hateful individuals or indeed, the state itself,” according to the council’s announcement of the rally.
The rally will be held from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Embarcadero Plaza, at Market and Steuart Streets in San Francisco.
