Chances are that as you’re reading this people are marching in Times Square to protest the upcoming anti-terrorism hearings that are admittedly targeting Muslim-Americans to prevent “home-grown terrorism” and fight against the “radicalization of Muslim communities in the United States.” I don’t think there could be anything more apropos for my 21st birthday!

A New York rabbi decided enough was enough and contacted his friend Daisy Khan (who came to speak at NU as part of Islam Awareness Week) and they decided to organize the “Today, I am Muslim Too Rally.”  The rally is a model for how interfaith activism can be used to make a more just America.

Follow the excitement here and sign the petition to broaden the homeland security hearings beyond Muslim-Americans.
