The Day After the Mosque Burns



Hey Kevin,

On the afternoon of January 27, Donald Trump announced a travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries. Protests erupted around the country, and in the early hours of January 28, a mosque in Victoria, Texas, was set aflame. By 6 a.m., it’d been nearly entirely destroyed.

Violence against Muslims is on the rise — anti-Islamic hate attacks in the US are at nearly the same levels as just after the 9/11 terror attacks. Around the world, Muslims are being targeted, discriminated against, and attacked.

But when the smoke clears and the sun rises over the ashes of a burnt mosque, what happens next?

Global Citizen went to Victoria, Texas, and Dresden, Germany, the site of two mosque attacks, to find out. And what we found were uplifting stories of compassion and love as people came together to support their neighbors.

Thanks for doing what you do.
