President Trump has issued multiple executive orders trying to ban people from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States and block refugees from rebuilding their lives in the country. These policies have been rejected by the public and the courts – and Amnesty International is helping stop them from taking effect.

The intent of these policies is clear: To ban people based on who they are, not what they’ve done. It’s discriminatory and dangerous.

Amnesty International has documented the impact of the ban on people across the world, uncovering harrowing individual stories that illustrate why this ban needs to be stopped. We’ve also worked with partners to organize protests in dozens of cities around the country, and we’ve mobilized thousands of people to call their Senators and ask them to stop this ban.

This page includes actions anyone can take today to stop the Muslim Ban, as well as background on it.

Actions

  • Call your Senators: Ask them to stand up to the ban. Dial 1-855-923-6687 and demand your representative publicly denounces it.
  • Share with your networks: Post this “Missing Senators” image on your Facebook page with #NoBanNoWall. The more people who search for these missing Senators, the more chance we have of hearing from them.
  • Hang a poster: Print our “Missing Senator” poster, personalize it, and display in your local area.
  • Plan or attend a rally: Make your voice heard. Find an event, read out guide for planning an event, and get protest materials.
