The Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) is committed to Education for Liberation for a more just world.
Take our #SacredPledge to #ResistRacism in all its forms:
REFLECT. I pledge to keep my heart open.
I will resist disregard with thoughtfulness.
I will develop a racial self awareness. I will check my own racial biases and internalized oppression. I will be aware of overt and subtle forms of racism. I will interrupt harmful behaviors.
LEARN. I pledge to seek knowledge.
I will resist ignorance with understanding.
I will educate myself about racial justice. I will seek opportunities to understand myself and systems of oppression. I will keep my mind open for opportunities to grow as a person. I will learn how I can do my part.
SUPPORT. I pledge to lend a hand.
I will resist scarcity with generosity.
I will be compassionate and charitable. I will bolster others who promote racial equality.
ENGAGE. I pledge to care.
I will resist apathy with concern.
I will be fully present. I will participate in creating caring communities. I will defend the most targeted amongst us and show up to protect their rights. I will engage in bystander anti-racism.
COMMIT. I pledge to reflect, learn, engage, and support.
I will resist uncertainty with resolve.
My #SacredPledge is to join MuslimARC in their efforts to #ResistRacism. Let us build a more just multifaith multiracial society - one where everyone is equal, welcome, and safe.
No one should feel unequal, unwelcome, or unsafe because of their ethnicity or how they pray.
I can do my part as an individual.
I can rebuke racist language, behavior, and policies.
I can resist racism and defend targeted communities.
I can promote fairness, understanding, and justice.
Let us tear down barriers and build bridges.
#BlackLivesMatter. #WaterIsLife. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids. Sanctuary for All.
