The Campaign to TAKE ON HATE calls upon all Americans to address the current acceptability of prejudice toward Arab and Muslim Americans, to stand up for change, and to TAKE ON HATE.

It’s still happening. It’s still wrong.

In the TAKE ON HATE video below, Arab and Muslim American youth answer the question: why do people discriminate? They also share their own experiences with discrimination and hate violence. Despite the hate, they say they are proud of their identities.
