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.
