Remove Racist and Islamophobic signs at Metro-North train stops.

As travelers of Metro-North, we need to make our voices heard. Signs like this explicitly target Muslims and promote hate-crimes. Organizations like CBS Outdoors and Jihad Watch frame the issue as "Islamorealism" versus "Islamophobia," but we know better. It is the cumulative effect of these representations that result in violence against Muslims. Please sign this petition so we can help put an end to this corrosive culture.


Letter to
CBS Outdoors and MTA
I just signed the following petition addressed to: CBS Outdoors and MTA.

----------------
Remove Racist and Islamophobic signs at Metro-North train stops.

As members of the community and travelers of Metro-North, we urge you to remove the ads targeting Muslims that are placed at each of your train stops . Signs like this explicitly target Muslims and promote hate-crimes. Organizations like CBS Outdoors and Jihad Watch frame the issue as "Islamorealism" versus "Islamophobia," but we know better. Please don't dismiss this as "freedom of speech." With increasing surveillance, harassment, shootings and attacks, signs like this create an unsafe and hostile environment for Muslims. Please remove these signs and stop violence against Muslims.

Sincerely,
