9/11 Reflection

We reflect on the 15th Anniversary of 9/11 and we hold ourselves to a continued commitment to Fighting Anti-Muslim Violence in our communities.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of September 11th. As we reflect on this day, we hold in our reflection the many acts of violence that often go unmarked. We recognize the tragic reality that widespread violence against Black and Brown Muslim communities is a pattern in this country. We know that the number of crimes against Muslim communities, both physical and verbal, have increased in the last 15 years. As these acts of violence have continued to grow, they often go unreported.

As Asian Americans, we recognize the Muslim members of our community and also commit to the wider goal of fighting all Anti-Muslim violence. We feel that it is critical to continue pushing ourselves in our commitment to disrupt this silence and to end all forms of racial and religious violence.
