Together Against Islamophobia
A core program of CMW, “Together Against Islamophobia” encompasses all of the programs, trainings, services, community outreach and partnerships, and bridge building activities that CMW is able to offer with its limited resources to address the challenge of growing Islamophobia and resulting hate crime and hate incidents that members of the Muslim community, particularly Muslim women are facing in Waterloo Region.
Reporting Hate Crimes / Incidents
CMW is actively looking for resources to build its capacity to address Islamophobia and hate incidents at interpersonal, systemic and societal levels. Our priority is to have a hate incident documentation process in place in 2020.
Documenting hate incidents helps us collect valuable data, over time. Reliable data provides good evidence. This data is then used to develop programs and services, as well as for advocacy.
