Legal Experts to Discuss Local and National Ramifications of Muslim Ban

Nationwide Panel Series: Legal Experts to Discuss Local and National Ramifications of President Trump’s Muslim Ban

Washington, DC – On the heels of the Trump administration’s Muslim Ban 3.0 announcement, Muslim Advocates will participate in a series of panels in Happy Valley, Pennsylvania, Las Vegas, New York City, Miami, Orlando, and Jacksonville. Local and national legal will analyze the short-term and long-term impacts of President Trump’s unlawful Muslim ban.

The panelists will highlight the changes in the latest iteration of the ban and its scope, the ways in which it has already affected the local communities, and those aspects of the ban that will remain in place regardless of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision. Additionally, the panelists will provide lessons learned from the Muslim Ban, including what communities can do to remain vigilant against discriminatory policies going forward.

Following panel presentations, there will be an extended Q&A session in which community members can voice their questions and concerns.
