URI President William Swing Encourages Interfaith Solidarity

WPTV West Palm Beach, a Florida news channel, just published a story and video about US President Donald Trump's executive order to temporarily ban refugees from primarily-Muslim countries.

WPTV featured an interfaith gathering at the Muslim Community of Palm Beach County, where people of all faiths came together to show solidarity with their Muslim brothers and sisters. The gathering included The Right Rev. William E. Swing, URI President and Founding Trustee, who is quoted in the article and video as saying that standing in solidarity with the Muslim community is critical after President Trump's most recent executive order. "It's not just a threat to Muslims, it's a threat to every person of any faith," says Swing.
