#ChristchurchMosqueAttack – steps small and large

Attacks on places of worship (Tree of Life, Mother Emmanuel, Oak Creek gurdwara to name but three) are always attacks on the community. Crimes of hate and terror may target individuals but they are always intended to send a message to a larger community.

As my heart aches and my mind reels following an attack on Muslims at worship in Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand by a white supremacist/white nationalist, I look for ways to respond.

Here are three small steps found so far:

Send a message of love and solidarity to the Muslim families of Christchurch

Donate to support those affected by the shooting 

Spread the word. #ChristchurchMosqueAttack

And a bigger one:

Look for ways to disrupt white supremacy and white nationalism
