MuslimARC is about Education for Liberation. Our anti-racism education and training for people of all backgrounds has lead to tangible action - from crowdfunding and sustaining activism to signing petitions and influencing policy to calling out bystander racism and raising consciousness around racial justice. This year, we've been educating on-the-ground through courses, workshops, discussion circles, and lectures across the country and building community online through social media and providing resources and toolkits.
MuslimARC trains leaders, amplifies voices, and changes narratives around diversity, racial justice, and critical anti-Islamophobia activism.

My #SacredPledge is to join MuslimARC in their efforts to #ResistRacism. Let us build a more just multifaith multiracial society - one where everyone is equal, welcome, and safe.
No one should feel unequal, unwelcome, or unsafe because of their ethnicity or the way they pray.
We know that each of us can do our parts as individuals: we can rebuke racist language, behavior, and policies. We can resist racism and defend targeted communities. We can promote fairness, understanding, and justice. I can tear down barriers and build bridges.
Together, we can counter racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia.
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
This phase in our society harkens to some of the bleakest periods of U.S. history, where politics of fear stoked an atmosphere of racism and xenophobia across the country. Layers of institutional and structural racism in Muslim communities and broader society - and the daily realities of all forms of bias, prejudice and bigotry - began long before this administration. However, the normalization of hate speech, passage of discriminatory legislation, and erosion of civil liberties has led to a broad-based movement to build a society where people can live in dignity.
The Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) recognizes the importance of fulfilling our Creator's mandate to fight oppression through sacred resistance. We pledge to join hands in leading the way towards ending racism. Out of our moral obligation to embody the principles of justice and human rights, we commit to protect and preserve the dignity of all, and uplift the most vulnerable in our society.
This pledge is open to people of all backgrounds. All human beings deserve dignity and respect. All of us can commit to change within ourselves, for our communities, and to transform society.
