Veale, L. (2014, December 16). Why are there anti-Muslim ads on our public buses? KALW. https://www.kalw.org/show/crosscurrents/2014-12-16/why-are-there-anti-muslim-ads-on-our-public-buses
In 2014, buses in San Francisco displayed an ad part of an anti-Islam campaign, the American Freedom Defence Initiative. Although the ads were critiqued by organizations, they continued to run because ad space on buses are private owned spaces. In addition, the ads did not directly violate SFMTA ad policy. Suggestions have been made such as proposing a ban on viewpoint ads in order to keep prejudicial ads off buses.
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.
