Why address Islamophobia?
Toronto is one of the most diverse and welcoming places in the world, but some Muslims still experience harassment. We partnered with the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) to remind us all that Toronto belongs to everyone – and that Muslims are as much a part of the fabric of our city as any other group of people. Everyone who lives here deserves the benefit of the inclusiveness and support that has made our city envious to the rest of the world.
