As we witness xenophobic and anti-Muslim policies in the United States and Islamophobic violence and terrorism in Canada after the tragic shooting of six Muslim men at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec in Quebec City, our thoughts and prayers go out to those have been victimized, exiled, and who have had their lives extinguished through these campaigns of hate. We commit to working against the climate of anti-Muslim racism, Islamophobia, and all forms of oppression and offer our support and sympathy to students, faculty, and staff in the Laurier community who are feeling vulnerable, alienated and afraid.
In light of these recent events, Muslim Studies and the Diversity and Equity Office (DEO) invite the Laurier community to join in a dialogue about Islamophobia.
