Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network (MUUSJN) is a state-wide network of Unitarian Universalists and our allies who work together for progressive change.
What You Can Do to Take On
Hate and Islamophobia
In 2010, 43% of Americans had positive attitudes toward Arab Americans, but in 20145, this declined to 32%. Since 9/11, there has been a 1600% increase in hate crimes toward Arab-Americans and Muslims. Unfortunately, presidential politicians are seeking votes by playing to the public's fears and hates by suggesting that Muslims are terrorists whose mosques can be closed; who must be recorded on lists and banned from entering our country. How shameful! What can you do?
1. Send letters to the editor that oppose the oppression of Muslims.
2. Join a group called Take on Hate. MUUSJN joined. Click HERE so your faith or community group can join as well. The groups lists actions you can take.
3. Consider having a speaker on the Musllim faith or organize a group of people to visit a mosque.
