No Hate in Our State - North Carolina

This petition had 1,749 supporters

Dear fellow North Carolinians,

The past years have shown us an ugly side of humanity, rooted in hate and division. We believe the normalization of hatred is not only unacceptable, but dangerous. We believe that North Carolina should pride itself on being welcoming and accepting of diverse groups of people, especially people who are of minority groups. This includes people of minority faith groups. On June 10th, a hate group called ACT 4 America is holding multiple anti-Sharia* rallies across the nation and at our state capital. They are trying to garner public support for President Trump’s Muslim Ban which has been blocked in court. We believe that leaders need to denounce this hateful and divisive plan. Though these groups have a constitutional right to speak, we have a moral obligation to speak louder - NO HATE IN OUR STATE!

Please sign this petition to demand that Governor Roy Cooper issue a public statement denouncing this hateful and malicious targeting of our fellow North Carolinians. As our governor, his leadership is needed to make it clear that we will not vilify our neighbors. We will protect religious freedom. We will choose love over hate.
