Join the Youth Organizing Program of the Arab American Action Network as we protest the business owned by the anti-Arab, anti-Muslim Palos Township trustee Sharon Brannigan!

Sharon Brannigan is guilty of racist public statements attacking Arab students, claiming we are “filling schools in Palos without proper documentation”. Brannigan also claimed that the 30% of Palos residents who are Arab and Muslim “keep their activities hidden” and questioned “whether they have peaceful intentions or not” when entering the United States.

Our demand as Arab youth is clear: Sharon Brannigan must RESIGN!

This protest against Brannigan’s business is an escalation of pressure after a year of monthly protests at the Palos Township meetings, organized by a coalition of Arab community organizations led by Take On Hate.

We will make our demand clear through speeches, spoken word, banner art and more — we hope to see you there!
