TWITTER ACTION ALERT for #American #Muslims – Follow Our Lead on Friday And Say #Thank You #ff

Muslims and non-Muslims in New York City and across the country have been upset by the news about the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslims. The news is disturbing and deeply concerning to say the least. However, we are heartened by and very appreciative of the number of people and organizations that have come forth to support us, to speak out with us and for us – and to defend civil rights for all.

We have taken note — and we want to express our gratitude. There is no better time than the present, and no better place than Twitter. Today — Friday, March 2, 2012 — we are going to #FF and say #ThankYou to the many individuals, including elected officials, journalists and universities that are supporting us and speaking out. We hope that you will join us on Twitter to help us say #ThankYou all day and all night.

We have a list of tweets to get everyone started. Feel free to use these, tweak them, or create your own. All we ask is that you include #ThankYou and #FF in your tweets.

(the full list of suggested tweets is at AltMuslim)
