Hate crimes 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 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.
Protect the American ideals of liberty and pluralism by telling your members of Congress that it’s time to reject white nationalism. We will not be divided.
