#OurLondonFamily

Our Statement on Islamophobia

A graphic with four people, no facial features, only silhouettes. They are meant to represent the diversity within the Muslim community. There is a green ribbon at the end of this graphic.

Today we mourn the loss of our #OurLondonFamily; three generations killed by one hateful act. Our thoughts go out to the nine-year old who is in the hospital at this time. We mourn but we are also angry; angry that we as a society have allowed Islamophobia to reach these proportions; angry that the ideology of white supremacy continues to manifest itself through violence against racialized communities, Black, Indigenous, Asian, Muslim and so many others. We stand in solidarity with #OurLondonFamily, the Muslim community and all victims of this hateful ideology.
