Since the 2016 election, incidents of hate crimes toward Muslims have increased dramatically according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. President Donald Trump’s controversial Executive Order banning travel to the U.S from several Muslim dominant countries has been met with widespread resistance and was halted temporarily through court challenges. As UU’s, we need to know about the dynamics of Islamophobia and how to be an ally for people from the Islam faith. Members of Northwest UU and the public are invited to a forum on Sunday, February 26 at Northwest UU Church on “Understanding Islamophobia and What It Means to Be an Ally of Muslims’’. Fatina Abdrabboh, attorney and Director of AMAL (American-Arab Muslim Minority & Advocacy League), will present this very timely topic followed by a Q & A period. AMAL, is a new civil rights organization that was launched this month to strengthen the rights of Arabs, Muslims and other minorities. AMAL in Arabic, means “Hope”.
