What to do if you are witnessing Islamophobic harassment

maeril_islamophobia

Artist and illustrator Maeril published this excellent comic instructional detailing how to intervene when witnessing Islamophobic harassment in late August 2016. Within days of Election 2016, the comic found a new life on social media.

Anyone with an ounce of empathy will note that the technique demonstrated here can be applied to any number of types of harassment. Maeril concedes this point, but notes the comic focuses specifically on Muslims in France, where Islamophobia is experiencing a considerable surge.Sadly, this is also the case here in the States; the section of the FBI report on victims of hate crimes in 2015 is here.
