#Bheard: MUSLIM IN NEW YORK |
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE INTERCEPT
Within days of taking office, the Trump administration signed an executive order banning travel from 6 countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The ban sent a familiar ripple of fear through Brooklyn's large Muslim community, still reeling from years of post-9/11 scrutiny, hate crimes and religious profiling. The “Muslim” ban as it came be known brought thousands of people to the streets in a powerful show of unity and solidarity. How can every Brooklynite become an ally against religious discrimination? And what are the next steps towards eradicating a legacy of fear and standing together as a community united? Join us on October 11th to #BHeard!
