11/15/2018From the Council on American Islamic Relations: In response to many of you who asked how the interfaith community can help, we just started a campaign to have allies write letters to the girl and her family expressing support, in an attempt to counteract the hatred that she's received. Even a short letter or note could be very touching and help her feel less alone. These can be mailed directly to the CAIR-Massachusetts office to ensure her safety and anonymity, and we'll deliver them to her. Here's our address; please feel free to forward this within your networks.https://www.facebook.com/groups/LocalLoveBrigade/permalink/741768316184598/

11/14/2018Jaylah, a fourth grader in Lexington KY, was called the N-word on two successive days by two different children while riding the bus! This child and parent are feeling powerless and mistreated by a district that has done nothing to address the perpetrators.
I can't stress enough about how much your cards meant to my son, wife, and I as we were victims of racial hate last year in New Hampshire. We want to return the love we were so freely given, please help!
Thanks
Benjamin Cauhill, Grace, and Joseph
