Muslim Immigrant Billboard

I woke up to a text message from a dear friend this morning. It alerted me to an anti-Muslim billboard here in Cookeville.

The billboard displays a message of support to President Trump. It reads, "Why Support President's Immigration Ban? 19 Muslim Immigrants Killed 2,977 Americans."

There's a similar billboard in Sevierville, and three more planned to go up throughout the state of Tennessee. They're all funded by the Tennessee Pastor's Network.
Tennessee isn't the only state you'll find the billboards. There's also one in North Carolina with the same message, but says it's paid for by the North Carolina Pastor's Network. The President of the North Carolina chapter said the message isn't about hate. He said it is quote, "the truth."

We would like to counter-act this message. For us, this has nothing to do with truth. 

If you want to be part of this initiative to counter this sign, please consider giving some money that will pay for a billboard that will spread a peaceful message and send a message that this kind of hatred has no place in our town, in our state, and in our country.
