Donald Trump’s first travel ban on citizens from Muslim-majority countries sent shockwaves through the world and the U.S., including in Columbus, where Muslims have long been an integral part of the community. In response to the ban, people from around the city rallied at the John Glenn Columbus International Airport, calling for an end to the travel restrictions and demonstrating support for their Muslim neighbors. I attended and photographed for the American Religious Sounds Project.
Hear a collage of sounds from the protest (audio recorded by Caroline Toy, and edited by me, for the ARSP):
Across the city a few days later, local faith leaders held a rally to decry the ban and reinforce messages of inclusion.
Thanks for looking.
