Corporate-free Candidate Town Hall
What do Gayle McLaughlin, Monica Montgomery, and Josh Jones have in common? They are rejecting corporate contributions in their campaigns for office, AND they will be joining our Town-hall panel!
Join the conversation and learn:
1) From Corporate-Free candidates for a wide array of offices (state-wide to city council) and parties (Greens, Democrats, "independents") who describe why they are running Corporate-Free campaigns and what they have learned.
2) How corporate dominance has crippled progressive change in our economy, environment, health care, education, housing, transportation, and criminal justice system.
3) From Gayle McLaughlin, founder of the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) and candidate for Lt. Governor, on how the Corporate-Free Elections strategy has been wildly successful in not only winning elections but also in making huge progressive political change AFTER winning (e.g., implementing rent control, $15 minimum wage, effective police review, solar energy jobs, stronger emissions standards, taking back the City of Richmond CA from Chevron's control, etc.)

CAIR-San Diego, Interfaith and Community Leaders to Condemn U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association's Anti-Muslim Event
(San Diego, CA, 2/20/18) – On Wednesday, February 21, the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) will join interfaith and community partners at a news conference outside a U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association (USNAAA) event in that city featuring an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.
WHAT: CAIR-San Diego and Interfaith Partners Stand Against All forms of Hate
WHEN: Wednesday, February 21, 11 a.m. PST
WHERE: In front of Dave and Buster's Mission Valley, 2931 Camino Del Rio N, San Diego, CA 92108
CONTACT: CAIR-San Diego Executive Director Hanif Mohebi, 858-774-9991, firstname.lastname@example.org
CAIR says the speaker at the event, John Guandolo, is an infamous Islamophobe who claims a former CIA director was a "secret Muslim" and that Muslim hotel managers, cabbies and 7-11 workers seek to take over America.
Last week, CAIR called on USNAAA to drop Guandolo as a speaker.
SEE: CAIR Asks U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association to Drop Anti-Muslim Speaker for San Diego Event
BACKGROUNDER ON JOHN GUANDOLO:
Last month, CAIR welcomed a decision by Tennessee's Trevecca Nazarene University to cancel an anti-Muslim event that would have featured three Islamophobic speakers, including Guandolo.
SEE: CAIR Welcomes Tennessee University's Decision to Drop Anti-Muslim 'Summit'
CAIR similarly welcomed a decision by Virginia's Amherst County Sheriff's Office to drop an event featuring Islamophobic conspiracy theorist Chris Gaubatz. Gaubatz is an employee of Guandolo's anti-Muslim hate group Understanding the Threat.
SEE: CAIR Welcomes Virginia Sheriff's Decision to Drop Anti-Muslim Event
Audio/Video: Islamophobes John Guandolo, Chris Gaubatz Smear Mosques, Say BLM is Funded by 'Enemies' of U.S.
The FBI is currently investigating an image tweeted by Guandolo's hate group that purported to show the bombing of "CAIR HQ" in Washington, D.C. Guandolo, who has previously tweeted that "CAIR needs to be obliterated," re-tweeted the bombing image on his personal account. Earlier this month, Guandolo tweeted that "Islam is evil & barbaric."

Minnesota's Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek has accused Guandolo of assaulting him during a national law enforcement conference earlier this year in Reno, Nev.

Anti-Muslim Speaker Now Accused of Assaulting a Sheriff
Among his many bizarre and Islamophobic claims, Guandolo has falsely claimed that:
- U.S. mosques are planning armed attacks on law enforcement authorities and churches,
- the Black Lives Matter movement is funded by "enemies of the United States,"
- when a Delaware Imam (Islamic religious leader) touched his nose during the pledge of allegiance before a legislative session it was part of "civilizational jihad,"
- former CIA Director John Brennan was a secret Muslim,
- Muslims are "obligated" to lie,
- Muslim hotel managers, cabbies and 7-11 workers seek to take over America,
- it is "unprofessional" for officials to seek information about Islam from Islamic religious leaders (imams).
CAIR has in the past said Guandolo is putting local Muslim communities at risk by making the false claim that, "Mosques/Islamic Centers are organizing for armed confrontation with law enforcement, shoring up physical defenses where they see likely confrontation and increasing their pre-attack surveillances of churches and other targets."

CAIR Islamophobia Monitor: John Guandolo
Video: Islamophobe John Guandolo Claims CIA Director John Brennan is a Secret Muslim
Guandolo: Delaware Imam Touching His Nose is Part of Civilizational Jihad
CAIR's profile of Guandolo documents his belief that America "is at war with Islam" and that major Muslim organizations and mosques are "preparing for combat." Guandolo also claims there is inaction on the part of the U.S. government to counter this threat because people inside the Trump White House "have been co-opted by the bad guys."
Earlier this year, Guandolo excused a terror attack on a London mosque because "people who are still sane" are "having to make very difficult decisions."

In 2016, a Texas college canceled a similar event. The college's decision came following a request by CAIR's Dallas-Fort Worth chapter.

In 2015, CAIR welcomed the withdrawal of an FBI representative from an event in Texas that was initially sponsored by the anti-Muslim hate group ACT! for America and featured Guandolo.
SEE: FBI Withdraws from Texas Event Initially Sponsored by Hate Group and Featuring Anti-Muslim Conspiracy Theorist
Virginia's Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy rescinded its approval of in-service training credits for state law enforcement scheduled to attend a training Guandolo was conducting in Culpeper, Va., after being made aware of his anti-Islam rhetoric.
SEE: Virginia Agency Pulls Accreditation for Anti-Muslim Training
A sheriff in Kansas decided not to partner with a citizens group sponsoring a Guandolo training after being informed of his conspiracy theories. When a journalist at Kansas' Wichita Eagle covered the controversy, Guandolo accused the reporter of material support of terrorism.
SEE: Kansas Sheriff Won't Partner on Training by John Guandolo
A number of Arizona police departments decided not to send officers to one of Guandolo's trainings.
CAIR: Arizona Police Departments Drop Out of Islamophobic Training
Guandolo left the FBI shortly after reports surfaced that he had allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with a key witness in a corruption trial targeting a member of Congress. In addition, he is documented as having falsified his credentials and work experience.
Major General Tony Cucolo, Commandant of the US Army War College, informed CAIR in an email: "Mr. Guandolo's claim (in print) that he teaches at the Army War College and any other references (e.g., online) identifying him as an adjunct instructor here are simply untrue."
The Washington-based Muslim civil rights group is asking Muslim community members to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR's Civil Rights Department at 202-742-6420 or by filing a report at: https://www.cair.com/civil-rights/report-an-incident/view/form.html
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
