Fresno petition to ‘disavow Islamophobia’
An online petition, created by The Central Valley Islamic Council and co-sponsored by a number of local pastors, urges Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin and the Fresno City Council to “disavow Islamophobia” by urging “all presidential candidates to refrain from inflammatory and hateful speech against Muslims and Islam” and to “write a letter to the county Board of Supervisors, California State Assembly and Senate representatives, governor of California, and House and Senate representatives, recommending them to also pass a similar resolution/bill.”
The online petition, started a week ago, had 227 signatures on Friday morning, with a goal of 500.
The petition can be signed online at change.org.
