DEARBORN, MI — On Saturday, December 17 at 11:00 a.m., Christian and Muslim faith leaders, elected officials and community activists will hold an interfaith protest at a Lowe’s store near Dearborn, Michigan Saturday to protest the company’s decision to cave to anti-Muslim extremists and pull advertising from the TLC show “All-American Muslim.”

Lowe’s pulled its advertising from the show after the Florida Family Association, a small right-wing fringe group, complained that it showed American Muslims “as ordinary folks just like you and me.”
