'Take On Hate' campaign challenges Arab, Muslim American discrimination
by Aysha Jamali
A new campaign will soon be unveiled that challenges the cultural acceptability of discrimination against Arab Americans.
The National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), a project of Dearborn-based ACCESS, will kick-off the campaign in Detroit 11 a.m. Monday at Cadillac Place, 3044 West Grand Blvd., in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.
The campaign will combat the prejudice against Arab and Muslim Americans, including Arab and Muslim refugees, through social change via public education, media and coalition building. The campaign also aims to provide a platform for Arab Americans and Muslims to speak up about discrimination to inspire policy changes that target institutional racism and protect people's rights.
