NYC Community Groups Challenge Mainstreaming of Hate

NOTE: APRIL 2011

Increasingly Muslim New Yorkers are finding that Islamophobic scare tactics are spreading– hate is becoming mainstreamed. Only 10 days ago we organized a press conference against islamophobic training materials being used at NYPD. We trust this practice will indeed cease. But now we find speakers with a long history of virulent Islamophobia being included in an important discussion of Homeland Security in the New York State Senate.
