A Peacemaking Project by Alisha S.
What is the injustice we are solving?
The injustice that I want to change within my community is the oppression and colorism within minority communities that has affected those within the community and a community view of other communities. For example, the Asian and South Asian's anti-black sentiments has greatly affected the movements against bigotry and hate. It's harder for the Muslim community to fight against Islamophobia without addressing racism and anti-black sentiments within the community and in society since a majority of Muslim Americans are black. Sentiments like these that have pitted communities of color against each other. It has divided our movements to fight against all hate.
Our Compassionate Solution:
To solve this injustice of prejudice and violence among minority communities
we will address colonialist ideals and history
by providing a space for individuals of different community backgrounds to share dialogue.
