Rally to Welcome Syrian Refugees says
Rally to Welcome Syrian Refugees in partnership w/ Xero Entertainment presents Bienvenue- a Bienvenue - New Orleans Refugees Welcome Rally.

Meet us at the Monument to the Immigrant Statue on the river walk, near the Aquarium in Woldenberg Park( 1 Canal St.). We will then proceed and walk to Jackson Square.
-Help us shed light on the Syrian cause, as thousands of individuals have had no other choice than to relocate their remaining family members in an ever-extended time of brutal war. A global refugee crisis has ensued, but increasingly divisive political rhetoric has resulted in calls for outright bans on refugees in the U.S. - even based on religion alone. Meanwhile, polls show alarming numbers of Americans would rather refuse refugees from war-torn areas like Syria than help those caught in the crossfire of maniacal terrorists, tyrannical despots, and jockeying world powers .

But, there are many still among us here who welcome those in need of refuge. Join community organizers, faith leaders, grassroots activists, and humanitarian volunteers on December 19th at the Monument to the Immigrant on the Riverwalk in downtown New Orleans, as we send a clear message that refugees are welcome here in the Crescent City, and we want to help! Let us peacefully urge officials and members of the New Orleans area to open their hearts, seek understanding, and find compassion for our fellow human beings. New Orleans is a melting pot of people from all over the world; enriched by new folks every day! Let's show people what southern hospitality is all about!
