Rao, S. (2015, October 20). #DoIMatterNow Campaign Promotes Indigenous-Muslim Solidarity in Canada. Colorlines. https://www.colorlines.com/articles/doimatternow-campaign-promotes-indigenous-muslim-solidarity-canada
In response to former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s policy which prohibited the wearing of niqab during citizenship ceremonies, a group of Inuit women created the #DoIMatterNow campaign. The campaign featured Inuit women who wore makeshift niqabs to show solidarity with Muslim women. In addition to showing solidarity, the goal of the campaign was to also draw attention to issues pertaining to Indigenous women.
The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
