On February 9, 2017 Iowa State University students, faculty, and staff marched from Memorial Union to Parks Library to protest President Trump's recent executive order that banned travel and immigration from several predominately Muslim countries and the suspension of refugees immigrating to the United States. Organizers of the march stated that the march aimed to "(1) bring attention to the interconnectedness of our struggles and (2) to protest the racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, anti-Black, and otherwise oppressive executive actions of #45 [Trump] and his administration."
Organizers also asked that "Muslim attendees are encouraged to wear hijabs or attire that celebrates their religious and ethnic identity. Non-Muslim attendees are encouraged to wear hoodies as a visible show of solidarity with our Black and Muslim communities. Please think carefully about cultural appropriation before wearing a hijab if you are not Muslim and do not understand why many Muslim women do so."
