East Orange Councilman Mustafa Al-M. Brent Planning Protest Rally

Dear Colleague and Friends of the Community,

Individuals in the United States and other countries are joining together in unity to protest their outrage against the policies established by the Trump Administration. 

As a sitting Member of the East Orange City Council, I believe that you and I as elected officials have an obligation to protect the rights of our constituents and their families. We are also asking organizations to help support the rights our community.

This Administration is moving swiftly and we cannot sit idly while they attempt to place undue hardships on our communities.  Towards that end, I have partnered with Essex County Freeholder President Britnee Timberlake and City of Orange Township Council President Donna K. Williams and Larry Ham from (POP) People’s Organization for Progress to organize an effort in Essex County to voice our outrage.   

Accordingly, we have planned to hold a Rally, titled “ONE UNITED” on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 9:30 AM.  We will convene at the Essex County Hall of Records, 465 Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. Boulevard and March to the Federal Building, 946 Broad Street at which time we will allow for comments from various elected officials and community activists.   

We stand at a crossroad, like so many times in our nation’s history, where our humanity, civility and constitutional rights are being violated.  Dr. Martin L. King Jr., stated, “All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” Again, I urge you to stand with us in unity as we labor as one united voice and galvanize our efforts during these alarming times to address the current Executive Orders of the Trump administration that will adversely impact our respective communities.  

In an effort to accomplish this, I welcome and encourage your participation and the participation of your constituents on the 18th.   We are in the process of distributing our flyers for the event and would hope that you would publicize the Rally throughout your community.  I am open and welcome any input you may wish to provide.

Please advise me if your schedule will allow for your participation.  You may contact me at 973.419.2234, mustafabrent@gmail.com or my Outreach Coordinator Lena Ragin at 973.776.2728 or Lragin22@gmail.com for further information.  Thank you for your attention in this matter and I hope that your response will be favorable.

Yours In The Struggle

Mustafa Al-M. Brent
