All deserve to feel welcome in this home we share, and we want our Muslim sisters and brothers who have supported us consistently as community members to know that when they are so unfairly condemned we will speak out more loudly to defend them. Additionally, for those seeking to create a home in the United States, we are a nation who believes in judging others by their character, not by their color, nation of origin or religion. We are one human family.

You don’t have to be passive! ICPJ can train you how to respond. Our Bystander Intervention Training will teach the basic tactics you can use to de-escalate or redirect threats and harassment.
