Help Stop Racist Flyer in Congress

January 4, 2006
Washington, DC — The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) are asking for your organization’s support. We have drafted the attached sign-on letters in opposition to a recent flyer campaign launched by the Nutritional Health Alliance depicting Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) wearing a turban with the words, “Keep Congressional Terrorism at Bay.” The flyer, attached here, explicitly makes a correlation between individuals who wear turbans with terrorism or terrorist activities.
Please review the two attached letters and contact either Rajbir Singh Datta (info@saldef.org) or Kareem Shora (KShora@adc.org) if your organization is able to endorse these letters.

Letter to National Health Alliance (PDF)
The deadline to sign on to these letters is January 6, 2006.
ADC and SALDEF appreciate your support for the Sikh, Muslim and Arab American communities against this outrageous attack on our culture and faith.
