Not in my back yard

ACT for America, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has described as the "largest anti-Muslim grassroots organization in America", are staging a bunch of "anti-Sharia law" rallies in various locations across the U.S. this weekend. One of them is happening in Santa Clara, a few blocks away from where I live. The ACLU, CAIR, and a bunch of other organizations are sponsoring a counter-demonstration.

I am going to be there to show support for the Muslims in my community. If you're relatively local, it would be great if you could come out as well, or spread the word.
