Exempt Wartime Interpreters from President Trump's Executive Order Banning Immigration

As an U.S. Army Captain serving in Afghanistan, I was almost killed by Taliban fighters. My Afghan translator, Janis, saved my life. We made a promise to translators like Janis, who served alongside our troops, to help them immigrate to the United States.President Trump’s ban on all immigration of refugees breaks that promise to the thousands of Afghan and Iraqi wartime allies. The president's Executive Order shuts the door on thousands of foreign interpreters, our wartime allies, who served alongside our military since 2001. Enacting a four-month ban on ALL immigration of refugees and an outright ban on the immigration of Iraqis condemns thousands of our Iraqi wartime allies to languish and fend for themselves against the very enemies we asked them to help us fight.The blanket ban on immigration from Iraq and the four month moratorium on immigration from Afghanistan prevents our allies from reaching safety here in America and leaves countless thousands to be hunted for their service to the United States. If we commit to this, we will permanently harm our national security. Our credibility will be forever neutered if not eroded. Why would any potential ally ever trust America to keep its word again? It pains me to think how many US soldiers will now die in future wars because we couldn't recruit the local support that is often the difference between life and death. Moreover, this ban imposes a lifetime moral injury on our Iraq war veterans. Vietnam Veterans speak often of their half-century injury at having abandoned so many of our Vietnamese allies. Please ask President Trump to keep our promise to America’s veterans and allow for the Special Immigration Visa program to continue uninterrupted. Sincerely, Matt Zeller, Co-FounderNo One Left Behind

U.S. Congress: Rescind the Muslim Ban Immediately #NoMuslimBanEver

The Trump administration has once again rolled out a new version of its Muslim ban, although this time it has no end date.  The American people rejected Trump’s bans and rallied at airports across the country in January. Several court decisions have struck down Trump’s un-Constitutional and un-American attempts to turn the President’s campaign promise of “a total and complete shutdown of all Muslims entering the United States” into policy. Yet, the Trump administration will not halt its discriminatory pursuit. Now, we have to take action to ensure that Congress stops shirking its responsibility and steps up to end Trump’s ban once and for all. On Oct. 18th, the day the new ban goes into effect, fifteen national organizations from across the country – ACCESS, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International USA, Arab American Institute, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Iranian American Bar Association, Muslim Advocates, Muslim Public Affairs Council, National Immigration Law Center, National Iranian American Council for Action, National Network for Arab American Communities, Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans and South Asian Americans Leading Together – will be gathering in Washington, D.C. to deliver a joint Change.org petition calling on Congress to halt the ban once and for all.  Be a part of this vital effort – sign the joint petition from these national organizations today in order to stop Trump's ban!

Petition to Mr. Roy Cooper

No Hate in Our State - North Carolina

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.
