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.

    We used to have a man that came into the bar and use all kinds of racial slurs and laugh and think it was funny, as a staff we decided to ask him never to return to our bar. I want to post “Hate has NO Business here” because I want people to know what we stand for before they walk in our doors and then they can choose to walk through our doors and be kindly served or pass.

    We live in a community where you either are a migrant worker, you live here now because your parents or grand parents were migrant workers or you just came here for a better life….Its a beautiful thing. We embrace that at our Restaurant as we embrace women. black lives, the LGBQT community, all faiths and all abilities.

    cheri whiteman — I feel fortunate to live in Chicago, and in the 9th IL CD, and when I visit my sister in Bloomington-Normal, I am heartened to see these & similar signs; people & businesses expressing the message. That’s where I really appreciate it, in places where it challenges people to decide if they really want to be “against love & humanity.”

    Monterey is minutes away from Gilroy. People are afraid of going to local events after the mass shooting there.
