Upcoming NOC Events

 
HateFreeAmerica
Unity Rally

Saturday,June 10, 2017
11:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m

Stevens Creek Blvd and Santana Row
San Jose, CA

     
On Saturday, June 10, NOC will join more than 120 civil rights and interfaith organizations at a “Unity Rally” in San Jose to respond to the hate group ACT for America's planned anti-Muslim protests in Santa Clara and across the country.

The leading sponsor of the anti-Islam protests, ACT for America, has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). SPLC claims that ACT has "grown into far and away the largest grassroots anti-Muslim group in America" and has named Brigitte Gabriel as a member of the nation's "Anti-Muslim Inner Circle."

The Unity Vigil will be from 11 am to 3 pm on the intersection of Stevens Creek and Santana Row. Members and supporters of NOC can meet by a "Stand Up To Hate" banner at 10:45 on the southeast corner (in front of the Yardhouse). Please note that our Unity Rally is being held at Stevens Creek and Santana Row while the March Against Sharia rally is at Stevens Creek and Winchester.

Please note that our event has no intention of engaging with or confronting the anti-Muslim rally attendees. This is specifically based on the request of local Muslim community leaders themselves as well as safety generally. We will be at least one block away, will not be marching, and will actively disassociate with anyone who attempts to antagonize the anti-Muslim rally. Unity Rally attendees should not shout  or yell at, or even attempt to go over to the anti-Muslim rally.

NOC Congratulates Kaitlin Wong on Award-Winning Essay
 
  NOC congratulates Kaitlin Wong, a student at Carlmont High School in Belmont, California who was a finalist in a nationwide, Facing History Student Essay Contest. 

Katie attended the 2017 San Jose Day of Remembrance in February with her grandmother, who was incarcerated in the Rowher, Arkansas concentration camp. Katie wrote eloquently about her relationship with her grandmother and how she gained a special insight on principles that she would like to live by.

  "Fighting for what you feel is right is a choice. From my grandma’s influence and my own experiences, I choose love and acceptance, to keep an open mind, and stand up for what I believe in."
