In this document you'll find a variety of resources—some are opportunities to reflect, others are more prescriptive. We recommend you browse the full document so you get a sense of what's available—contextual framing from Karen Armstrong, guidance for Muslims by Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid, an overview of Islamophobia from Barbara Kaufmann, and links to resources by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and others—many geared toward educators. Finally, you'll find a reflective article by Cambridge Muslim College dean Abdal Hakim Murad and a list of resources for your further study. After getting an overview of what's here, we recommend you set aside time to read at least one of the background articles. Then, use these tools to take action. The single most important thing that you can do to counter Islamophobia is to not remain silent. Your courage to speak will embolden others to be compassionate, and may give pause to those who vilify.
