Muslim organizations note that the climate of profiling and suspicion is worse now than it was after 9/11 and that incidents of intimidation, bullying and violence have spiked in recent months. AFSC's Communities Against Islamophobia project aims to develop new allies to those affected by anti-Muslimism in the Trump era.  Dina El-Rifai and Mary Zerkel will discuss the ways that the dominant narratives around Muslims/Islam create the environment for personal harm as well as state-level violence, and ways that allies can work to support the Muslim community.
