A message from the Executive Director:
These are turbulent times. We are seeing, in too many quarters, a tragic and dangerous turn towards xenophobia, exclusion, bigotry and even hate crimes. Such actions are being directed against minorities who are often the most vulnerable communities amongst us. One specific group, Muslims, have been subjected to a particularly brutal rise in hate crimes and bigoted comments. As a counterpoint to these horrible actions and statements please read the truly inspiring and beautiful commentary piece by CUGH Board member Dr. Mohammed Zaman that was recently published in the New York Times. It is a wonderful testimonial to the best of what the US stands for from the pen of an extraordinarily accomplished Muslim American of Pakistani birth. I hope you will read it and share it widely.
