Take Action

1. Sign the Petition

The National Council of Canadian Muslims have a petition to demand the designation of January 29th as a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia. They write on their website: 

"This call is based on precedent. Every December 6th, there is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women to mark the anniversary of the 1989 shooting massacre of 14 women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal.

 

The federal government says it has “received and noted” the NCCM’s proposal. Now, it’s your turn – join fellow Canadians and make your voice heard. By making this designation, we can ensure that we collectively never forget the horrific consequences of allowing hatred and xenophobia to go unchecked."

2. Show Up 

There has been a dramatic increase in white supremacist rallies, seen in the recent events of the Proud Boys disrupting an indigenous protest, and many La Meute gatherings.  

It is more important than ever to show up and shut down these racist, alt-right rallies.
