Host: Namish Modi
This piece features an interview with Coalition of Muslim Women KW director of programming and services Sarah Shafiq. The interview was on June 22, a little more than two weeks after the murder of four members of a Muslim family in London.
It was determined that the motivation for the attack, by 20-year-old white man Nathaniel Veltman, was hate-motivated.
Shafiq discusses the mission of the coalition, as well as what the organization has done to support the nine-year-old boy who lost the rest of his immediate family.
Shafiq also touches on the importance of allyship and what non-Muslims can do to help combat islamophobia.
