In the current regressive climate of one-sided coverage of Palestine and Israel conflict, we want to make sure that you have tools and support to exercise your right to free speech. The task ahead of educating our fellow citizens and demanding balanced approach from our elected officials and media sounds daunting. But we take courage from the divine revelation "So verily, with the hardship, there is relief. Verily, with the hardship, there is relief” Quran (94-5,6)
We hope that the following resources will help you in exercising your right to free speech and protecting you and your family from harassment.
