Fighting Islamophobia in NYC


The Jews Against Islamophobia Coalition
is made up of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Jewish Voice for Peace-NY, Jews Say No!, and individuals committed to challenging anti-Muslim bigotry and anti-Arab racism. We formed in immediate response to the Islamophobic right-wing opposition to the building of Park51/Cordoba House, the proposed lower Manhattan mosque and Islamic center. We devloped a network for the purposes of making our voices heard and offering a Jewish voice that is part of the larger community effort(s) to challenge Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism. We are committed to challenging Jewish institutions and organizations that promote Islamophobia through their words or action. We respond to other forms of Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism as they arise and are also proactive in speaking out about the issues and making the connections as they need to be made.
