Washington, DC | www.adc.org | December 16, 2011 – This weekend people across the country will be standing up against bigotry and hatred as the “Boycott Lowe's” Campaign goes from tweets to the streets. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) endorses the “Boycott Lowe's" Campaign, organized by the National Lowe’s Boycott Network, and encourages members across the country to get involved with the campaign and make their voices heard!

Organized protests in front of Lowe's locations across the country are only a start of many actions targeted at fighting bigotry and hate.

The National Lowe’s Boycott Network is a grassroots effort and campaign started by activists across the country in wake of the Lowe's decision to pull advertising from the TLC show “All-American Muslim” as   a direct response to pressure from the Florida Family Association's bigoted campaign. Those involved in the Network come from a broad spectrum of religious, ethnic and professional backgrounds – one thing they do have in common is their united stand against hate and bigotry.


NOTE TO EDITORS: The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), which is non-profit, non-sectarian and non-partisan, is the largest grassroots Arab-American civil rights and civil liberties organization in the United States. It was founded in 1980 by former Senator James Abourezk. ADC has a national network of chapters and members in all 50 states.
