| 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!
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.
