Let’s make sure Ontario steps up against Islamophobia

United Against Islamophobia is calling on the Government of Ontario to designate January 29 as a Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.

On January 29, 2017, six worshippers were killed and many others injured during evening prayer at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City. In that year, hate crimes against Muslims in Ontario rose by 207%. Most recently, a horrific attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, has left us all shaken.

Islamophobia and hate are on the rise in our province, and we must take action. Our government must commit to rejecting forces that negatively impact the lives of fellow Ontarians.

Join us by sending an email to your MPP. Tell your MPP racism and hate are not welcome here.
