Talk is cheap, too many people “lip service” this man Trump and his racist cronies’ extremism and yet do nothing.
SELF IMPOSED BAN IN SOLIDARITY WITH OUR MUSLIM BROTHERS & SISTERS
In light of the appalling actions of Mr. and his “colleagues” with respect to the Muslim & Refugee ban I am unable to accept your kind to attend InterConnect in this March. Professionally, I am saddened by this but my moral compass and my beliefs concerning the importance of human decency, tolerance, respect, freedom, and civil liberties outweigh my ambitions. While my self imposed ban will have zero effect on this disgusting by POTUS, to do nothing is not an for me and if enough people act in their own small way we will reverse the present trend of the normalisation of the abnormal.
