Raleigh, North Carolina – Sunday, August 07, 2016- "Challenging Islamophobia and Racism"
Islam and Muslims have been under the intense scrutiny of the government, the media, and the Western Society since the 9/11 tragedy. Many peaceful law abiding Muslims locally and around the United States have been the victims of discrimination, verbal insults, and violence.

According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports program. Prior to the 9/11 attacks, the program typically recorded between 20 and 30 anti-Muslim hate crimes per year. But in 2001 that number rose more than tenfold to nearly 500. In the years since, annual hate crimes against Muslims have consistently hovered in the 100-150 range, roughly five times higher than the pre-9/11 rate.

In Febuary 2015 three young Muslims students, Deah Barakat, 23, his wife, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, and her sister 19 year old Razan were killed execution style by a neighbor in Chapel Hill NC. CNN.com

In 2015, more than 70 acts of damage, destruction, vandalism and intimidation against Muslims houses of worship.
4 out of 10 Americans have an unfavorable view of Islam.
44% of Americans said they believe that some curtailment of civil liberties is necessary for Muslim Americans.
26% think that mosques should be closely monitored by U.S. law enforcement agencies.
29% agreed that undercover law enforcement agents should keep tabs on Muslim activities and fund raising by infiltrating their civic and volunteer organizations.
