Community Support and Justice: Muslims

This guide is a collection of King County resources for our diverse community, as well as a statement of support for all of our students.

About this Guide

Our communities have a great deal of support in King County, and knowing where to look for assistance and camaraderie in stressful times is important. Remember, we are stronger together!

In response to the ongoing attacks on members of our Asian American & Pacific Islander communities, the library is compiling this expanding our list of resources with organizations and activities recommended by our campus colleagues.  Ask a librarian about strategies to combat the misinformation that feeds anti-Asian violence.
