We have been closely following the horrific attacks on Black churches in the last week, church after church.
Other action items from the campaign:
- "Ask questions about who is responsible for these church burnings with the trending hashtag #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches
- Petition the President to re-convene the National Church Arson Task Force: https://www.change.org/p/president-of-the-united-states-bar…
- Organize a teach-in or training to understand church burnings and how to protect houses of worship and fundraiser to support rebuilding
- Organize a solidarity event with African American churches and use the Muslim ARC #BlackLivesMatter toolkit
- And of course, pray. Pray hard."

This Ramadan, MuslimARC aims to encourage Muslims to build bridges across racial and ethnic lines, affirm our bond as a spiritual community, and commit ourselves to addressing racial injustice.
