Overcoming Hate: Reflection on Healing Post-9/11 Human Rights Day 2021
This past 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.
