The prosecution of #NoorSalman for #Pulse massacre is an example of guilt by association, gendered Islamophobia, and the War on Terror. 100+ organizations (including GAPIMNY) say #WeStandWithNoorSalman.
This prosecution punishes Ms. Salman for the actions of Omar Mateen and the violence he inflicted upon those around him, including her. This criminalization of Ms. Salman continues the cycle of dehumanization and terror that she experienced in her marriage to Mateen, and does not allow her to heal and re-build her life. The prosecution of Ms. Salman in today’s climate of Islamophobia and the War on Terror has alarming repercussions for Muslim women and for all survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are criminalized for the actions of their abusive partners.
Fortunately on March 30, 2018, Noor Salman is acquitted in Pulse Nightclub shooting. For more information: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/30/us/noor-salman-pulse-trial-verdict.html
