Why VCI Volunteer J. Timmons Signed the VCI Statement

I signed the VCI Statement because I have Muslim friends around the world, have worked with many of them, and have lived a couple summers in a Muslim country, so when I hear venomous, racist, and bigoted rhetoric about Muslims – especially from those in positions of power who were elected to represent us and “lead” our country, I get upset.

Upset because I worry about how the irresponsible and ignorant disparagement of Muslims has affected and continues to affect the safety, health, and lives of Muslim Americans, our troops abroad, and Muslims around the world. Islamophobia stinks! It is harmful and hurtful. That’s why I signed VCI’s statement.
