Asalamualeikum dear brothers and sisters,
We received a notification that the Alt right group called Proud Boys is holding a protest rally on Saturday, August 15, from approximately 12 noon to 6 pm at Arcadia Park in Downtown Kalamazoo.
This group is reportedly against:
All people of color, migrants, Muslims, Jews, women and few other entities.
Reportedly after the rally, they spread out into communities/neighborhoods to provoke a fight or indulge in violence.
This is a serious security concern for our communities. We need to be extra vigilant and avoid travel if possible during that time especially in and around the downtown area, North, East neighborhoods and in the college campuses.
May Allah protect all of our community.
