Mediation Center Supporters,
The NYC Commission on Human Rights is preparing to launch a survey project addressing bias-motivated harassment, discrimination, and violence experienced by Muslim, Arab, South Asian, Jewish, and Sikh communities across the city.
From the NYC Commission on Human Rights:
We’ve noted a significant increase in violence driven by hate and bias since July 2016, particularly against these communities. Through this survey project – prepared in close consultation with advocacy organizations, service providers, community leaders, and faith institutions – we hope to reach the full and diverse range of these communities and better understand the presence of discrimination and its impact.
The survey, which is entirely anonymous, will be out for response from October 12 – late November, and will be accessible electronically and in hard copy, in English, Arabic, Bengali, French, Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Russian, and Yiddish.
We are partnering with a wide range of organizations, community centers, faith institutions and networks to make sure this survey reaches as far and wide as possible! The partnerships look different for each organization and range from posting the survey online, to having Commission staff attend an event to table and administer the survey, to sharing the survey project with colleagues, partner organizations, and houses of worship that may be interested.
Here is a link to where the survey will be available: http://bit.ly/cchrsurvey
