Islamophobia is bigotry and oppression (individual or institutional) against Islam, Muslims and people perceived as Muslims. The Movement to End Racism and Islamophobia (MERI) is a network of North Carolina-based organizations with a mission to end racism and Islamophobia. Our goal is to build a movement that challenges all forms of oppression. We work with folks and organizations from every background to uplift all marginalized voices. Since we launched this network in early 2015, we have organized discussions and actions throughout North Carolina to defeat Islamophobia. Our partners include:
Muslims for Social Justice Jewish Voice for Peace – Triangle NC Black Workers for Justice AIME (Abrahamic Initiative on the Middle East) NC Justice Center Methodist Federation for Social Action – NC Conference Chapter Peace Committee of Chapel Hill Friends Meeting Bill of Rights Defense Committee Balance and Accuracy in Journalism Peace and Justice Committee of the Community Church of Chapel Hill Unitarian Universalist The Orange County Peace Coalition The Salam Shalom Committee of the Church of Reconciliation in Chapel Hill Quaker House (Fayetteville) MAPAC (Muslims American Public Affairs Council) Stop Torture Now.
