Act for America is leading marches in several American cities this weekend.
The “March Against Sharia” will take place in more than 20 cities this weekend according to NBC News. At the same time, counter-protests are expected to attempt to disrupt the marchers.
The liberal mayor of Portland, Oregon unwittingly helped the “March Against Sharia” gain national attention when the city attempted to block the local chapter from rallying following the death of two Portland men who were trying to protect two women from a man who was yelling anti-Muslim slogans at them.
The leader of the Seattle group said, “We are not anti-Muslim. We are anti-radical Islam.”
At the heart of Act for America is the belief that Sharia law conflicts with the U.S. Constitution and is a leading contributor to the radicalization of Muslims.
Act for America boasts more than half-million members across the country.
