Galveston Strong: Stand Up to Hate

There was an unfortunate exhibition of bigotry and Islamophobia at a local restaurant in Galveston, Zaza Bar & Bites. The owner, Asad Khan, found his restaurant covered in bacon last Sunday. It is obvious that this was an attempt to intimidate Asad because of his Muslim identity.

We, the people of Galveston, will not tolerate any acts of hate toward any group of people, and especially not toward our small business owners.

Please come show your support on Thursday, December 8th, by purchasing a meal at Zaza during the extended hours (11AM-11PM).

The Muslim Medical Association and Student National Medical Association at UTMB will be going collectively at 7:00PM. We will be bringing a poster, so please feel free to sign it in solidarity.

If you can't come, you can always go there for dinner another day, and maybe reach out to the owner to show your support.
