Nando’s is inviting people to hang posters that read “Everyone is welcome” as Donald Trump is sworn into office on inauguration day.

The restaurant has been handing out the posters in its six branches in Washington DC, and is encouraging diners to print off their own and display them on January 20.

It addition to this, Nando’s will be donating 50% of its proceedings over two days to DC Central Kitchen, which cooks up meals for the homeless as well as helping prepare unemployed adults for culinary careers, among other initiatives.

The #EveryoneIsWelcome posters relay the message that Nando’s is an “immigrant employing, gay loving, Muslim respecting, racism opposing, equal paying and multi cultural” restaurant, regardless of race, age, gender or sexual orientation.

“On January 20, Inauguration Day, Nando’s will be what it always has been: A place for everyone to enjoy and share delicious PERi-PERi chicken, no matter the circumstances,” the restaurant said.

“At a time when people apply labels in inflammatory ways, we wanted to be clear that everyone is and always will be welcome,” the firm said. “Even if you’ve never sat at one of our tables, you’re welcome to stand with us.

“We’re all about firing the senses, but also feeding the soul. On January 20 and 21, we will donate 50% of the net proceeds from our six DC locations to DC Central Kitchen, which is helping to break the cycle of hunger in Washington.”

Nando’s currently has more than 30 branches throughout the US.
