Our work to confront, resist, and transform Islamophobia and racism requires fighting the social, systemic, and ideological dynamics of hatred that are currently threaded through our communities. This means challenging individual acts of hatred, including anti-Black racism that gives legitimacy to racial profiling, police violence, the prison industrial complex, and other forms of institutional oppression against Black and Brown people. We believe that fighting Islamophobia and abolishing anti-Black racism are deeply connected and we work in solidarity with Black leadership. We do this by building power from those most directly affected in the grassroots.
Our work includes organizing workshops and teach-ins to educate on Islamophobia and anti-racism, cultural transformation, challenging local cases of Islamophobia, and mobilizing grassroots campaigns against the people and institutions who are spreading this hatred.
