In an effort to document the stance of Islamic schools’ against the injustices perpetuated against black Americans and to demonstrate Islamic Schools’ Solidarity and Support for Black Lives Matter, the following schools sent letters to their communities communicating just that.
Each letter is unique. They highlight the diverse communities we serve and the diverse leaders in our schools. Many of the school letters lay out resources for their parents or community members to read and watch to learn more about Black Lives Matter. Some even courageously share their own vulnerabilities by honestly sharing how much more they have to learn and do.
This is one small step that Islamic schools are making towards fighting racism and seeking to establish justice in this world. Collectively we can make a difference and it starts here!
