This morning, we mourn the ‪#‎ChapelHillShooting‬. We honor the lives and memories of Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha, and Razan Abu-Salha, Our Three Winners.

We condemn this horrible killing and we commit, with even more purpose, to speaking out and acting against anti-Muslim and anti-Arab violence and bigotry, from here in North Carolina in solidarity with Muslims for Social Justice and in our work in solidarity with Palestine to end the Israeli Occupation.

Those of us who are white people, and non-Muslims, know that we have SUCH a great responsibility to call out racism and Islamophobia where and when we see it. Especially in our OWN families, communities, and houses of worship, where white silence only perpetuates violence and ignorance. There is no excuse for our silence.
