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 refugees and immigrants in our community and our Latinx, Muslim and African American community members. 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.

    Refugees created from bombed and destroyed communities must be given succor by their tormentors? No wonder so many people fear them. It’s the fear some have of survivors and of the children of people whose communities have been brutalized in recent decades. It’s the fear of justice. Bring them in! Face the fear, cowards. Look in the faces of human beings who’ve been crushed. Look into the eyes of those who will judge our moral worth.
