60,000 people heard our message to #TakeOnHateWithLove

Posted on February 16, 2016

All last week, we shared stories that demonstrate how people across the country, and around the world, turn hate and violence into an opportunity to #‎TakeOnHateWithLove (find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).

The rising fear, hate and discrimination that Muslim and Arab Americans face today make it challenging to have our voices heard. However, with public platforms like social media, we do have the chance to present our side of the story. We reached 60,000 people with the message to #TakeOnHateWithLove just with the stories we shared last week.

From acts of service, to crowd-funding, to dressing up as a superhero, there are endless ways to take action to stand up to hate and present our own narrative. We hope you were inspired by the stories we shared of people rising above the hate to respond instead with positivity and change. We encourage you to continue to share your own and others' positive stories by tagging them with #TakeOnHateWithLove. Let's #‎TAKEONHATE together!
