- Find ways to support local initiatives to host or resettle Syrian refugees. Where possible, identify mentors or buddies to help refugees who are students to navigate school culture.
- Document, track and publicize instances of negative stereotyping of Muslim women. Work
with local allies to combat those stereotypes and provide your community (and media
professionals) with a more accurate picture. If needed, brainstorm ways to protect Muslim women who fear being attacked.
- As a way of educating yourself on the issue and humanizing political debate over immigration policy, collect stories from Syrian (or other Muslim or Middle Eastern) refugees or immigrants. Share those stories with elected officials and with the public.
