New Zealand and the Need for Critical Anti-Islamophobia

New Zealand silver fern comprised of 50 Christchurch Muslims praying

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un. To God, we belong and to God, we shall return.

On Friday, March 15th, a white supremacist gunman attacked two mosques during jummah congregational prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand. The attacker killed 50 people and injured dozens. Our prayers are with the victims and survivors of the massacre and all people impacted by hate crimes. We join the many voices expressing solidarity.

As an organization dedicated to anti-racism education, we are committed to building a just and inclusive world where diversity is seen as an asset rather than a threat. Mourning this tragedy compels us to ask: What now?

Study of Intra-Muslim Ethnic Relations: Muslim American Views on Race Relations

Preliminary Report

MuslimARC launched the first nationwide study of Muslim American views on race relations on December 8, 2014. The survey aimed to reach “mosqued” and “unmosqued” Muslims by utilizing the power and membership of social media, national Muslim organizations, student groups, social networks and personal contacts. MuslimARC reached out to many diverse Muslim groups to determine perspectives on race relations, segregation of Muslim populations, and personal experiences with race within Muslim communities and in North American societies at large.
