Violent acts of bigotry have rapidly increased in the last four years; along with LGBTQ, Sikh, African-American and Jewish communities, American Muslims have been among the most impacted. Most of these incidences rooted in anti-semitism, islamophobia, and with aims to infringe upon various communities’ civil rights and liberties have been linked, nationally and globally, to White Supremacy. Understanding the history and nuances of this movement is essential as we work to combat it on a national, local and community level. Inaction to this will lead to autocratic ideals permeating policies and public perceptions, as it has done so in the past. We created this paper, to inform our policy-makers, law enforcement, and community leaders so that we can be proactive in finding a solution.
Invest in MPAC’s work to improve public policies and perceptions. We’re changing how America views Islam and Muslims.
