Event description
Community Leaders discuss the process of healing from racially and culturally motivated hate over the past 20 years since 9/11.

About this event

This September marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11, an event that has irrevocably shaped American politics and culture in the two decades since. While every community has felt the lasting impacts of September 11, our friends and neighbors in Muslim communities have experienced a horrific backlash of discrimination and overt Islamaphobia over the last 20 years that continues today. In the past year, there has also been increased media attention around hate crimes directed at Asian Americans.

The past two years have been difficult and lonely, and though we are still not able to come together in person, we want to celebrate healing, resilience, and love with our Seattle friends, family, and neighbors. This Human Rights Day, the Seattle Human Rights Commission spotlights healing from hate crimes on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

Community members from World Without Hate, AFT Washington, Washington State Senate, Lavendar Rights Project, and MAPS-AMEN (American Muslim Empowerment Network) join us in a panel discussion about resilience and reconciliation from racially and culturally motivated hate.

The Seattle Human Rights Commission wants to celebrate and acknowledge those in our community working tirelessly to fight for and uphold human rights in our community through the Human Rights Awards.
