A quickly organized rally Sunday afternoon in support of Muslims in Alameda grew to more than 300 people. The rally in front of the Islamic Center of Alameda was organized online over the weekend to express solidarity with Muslims. It gained energy following protests on Saturday at San Francisco International Airport and others airports across the country opposing President Trump’s executive order banning travelers from seven Middle Eastern countries.
