What is the Network Against Islamophobia Reading?


As we are organizing and strategizing within our communities and trying to do work that is meaningful and thoughtful, there is so much to read and learn about in relation to Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism in the current moment. We at NAI are going to share some of the recent articles we have found most helpful and will continue to do so. Please send us any suggestions at nai@jvp.org

And, in the meantime, please look at the NAI page on the website to learn more about the work we are doing to be as visible as possible. You can learn about the canvassing we are doing in our communities and can join one of the Chanukah actions against Islamophobia that will be taking place across the country. And we also have lots of resources and curricula to help strengthen our work.
