    Our church will contact a local muslim. We will seek their council on what we can do to show that we are supportive of them.

    I’m going to connect with American Muslim Voice, attending an event hosted by that organization on Dec. 19. I will also be in touch with Muslim friends and allies.

    Contact a mosque, and ask if we might visit. Invite Muslims to a church or synagogue.

    Churches and synagogues need to sponsor interfaith events so that Christians and Jews can get to know member of the Muslim community in their towns and cities.

    I intend to revisit the music of the civil rights era on the street corners of my town. The power of these lyrics can make people stop in their tracks, realizing how they can be applied today against the same hatred, prejudice and violence that is haunting us still. Bellingham has the longest-running Peace Vigil in the nation. It has been going every Friday afternoon since the Vietnam war, still run by some of the orginal people. I couldn’t be more proud of my town!

    Hi everybody.

    Thanks for the initiative. I’m French, live in France, and I became muslim 3 years ago. I think the best way to fight islamophobia is for the Muslims to get involved as much as possible in the community, to be noticed as “normal” people, and to speek with each other. I think tensions and hate come from a lack of communication.

    When I started to wear hijab, people around me didn’t understand. As I spoke freely with them, people started to understand. And now they accept me as there is no difference. I am part of the community again, althought I had became a second class cityzen in my own country when I started to were hijab. I’m still a second class cityzen for the States, as french laws forbid a women with hijab to get a job as a State employee (and in fact, forbid us to work at all in the facts !). But I’m again a normal human being for the rest of the community, simply because I didn’t locked myself at home, away from the society.

    Another thing I’ve heard often here is you never see women with hijab in cultural activities, in theatre, in museums …. Also, I’m often the only one with a hijab to go to protests (except for Palestine !) to fight for human rights, womens rights, situation in Tibet, global warming, … or to be a member of associations . I think it is important to go out, and participate to the rest of the society, not only on muslim matters.

    Islam is part of the whole picture, or the whole picture is part of Islam, as you wish !

    We, as muslims, we do have to depart from those barbarians who kills with no commun sens, because Islam is a religion of peace and love, and good behavior with your neighbors, wether they are muslim or not doesn’t matter.

    And for that, we have to show ourselves, and communicate. No point of staying at home. It is hight time to get out of our shell and communicate, one step after another.

    Islam is a religion of action, well then move your butt !

    Thanks for reading me and sorry for the bad english !

    Take care,

    Sylvie Gaiguant

    Wear a headscarf in solidarity and a button that says “I support peace loving Muslims.”

    I’m talking to Muslim guys who have a shop here where I live and will invite them to my non-denominational church . They are friendly and open to talking about Islam – and proudly wear their hats – It’s a very liberal town…..
