    Thank you for sharing this. It would make a great T-shirt statement with a little graphic editing. And permission from the Zen Center.

    Yes, it's a great sign/message. Needs a bit of editing down for a tee shirt but would like to see it out there. Lilith

    fyi... I googled and found that the poster is from the Main Street Alliance, https://www.mainstreetalliance.org. You can print the poster out from their website. It is a fresh authentic voice, bringing truth to the rhetoric heard today.

    From their website: "The member businesses of the Main Street Alliance and our fellow small business owners throughout the country are deeply disturbed by the inhumane treatment of immigrant families. The hateful rhetoric and violence aimed at refugees fleeing violence, at immigrants, at our Muslim and Arab community members, at women and at people of color in our communities is unconscionable and must end immediately.

    This swell of hate and fear permeating our national dialogue is dangerous. We believe it must be met head-on with clear statements of principle from local business owners because we are leaders in our communities.
    America must be a place where people from all nations, races, genders, and creeds seeking freedom and opportunity feel welcome and can build safe, prosperous lives for themselves and their families. When politicians and pundits target people in our communities for political gain, when they fan the flames of hatred and fear, when they attack our neighbors, friends, family members, fellow business owners, employees, and customers, we must stand up and make our voices and our values heard loud and clear:

    We stand united against hate and violence. We stand with our Muslim community members and we stand with refugees and immigrants in our community. We respect women and we value Black lives. We welcome everyone. There is no place for hate in our businesses, our homes, or in our country. "

    There is a similar sign like that at Coffee Catz in Sebastopol. Very cool.

    Thank you for sharing this background information. I'd love to see these signs going up in many places in our county and beyond. Consciousness needs to be revealed for all to see. We're surrounded by unconscious messages from our addictive media. This could start a new trend! Thank you again for sharing this truly enlightened message.
