Statement regarding Islamophobia and the Shooting of 3 students in Vermont

The HUC stands in solidarity against Islamophobia. While the investigation is still unfolding, it is unacceptable that students were targeted on their way to dinner while speaking Arabic and wearing a traditional Palestinian keffiyeh (scarf). We’d like to remind our community of the importance of standing against Islamophobia. Our Palestinian, Arab, and South Asian community members and students have been feeling a heightened sense of fear due to multiple assaults, murders, and verbal threats toward people going about their daily lives or exercising their constitutional rights around the nation. Once more: as a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-faith community, we reject all forms of hate. We all belong here.
