Stand in solidarity with Muslim communities

Take action against violence and racism following Quebec mosque mass shooting

In the wake of the horrific mass shooting at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City on January 29, which left six dead, HEU is calling on members to join others across Canada in standing up to racism, violence and islamophobia. 

Following the U.S. election campaign and election of Donald Trump, there has been an increase in reported incidents of racism, hate crimes against mosques and synagogues and other community places of worship in many Canadian cities.

This latest and deadliest attack comes at the end of a weekend in which the Trump administration decreed a ban on travel to the U.S. from seven countries where Muslims are in the majority.

HEU has a long history of working to end racism and oppression in all its forms.

Please join us in standing up for our Muslim communities by attending a solidarity event in your community this weekend:
