A Message About COVID-19
Dear Community Members and Friends,

As Salaamu Alaikum.

We hope this message reaches you in good health. During this time of uncertainty and concern, we wanted to reach out to the community to send a message of unity despite the sense of isolation many may be finding themselves experiencing.

Though we may feel threatened by what has come upon us, this serves as a chance to reflect how our brothers and sisters in areas such as Palestine and Kashmir who live under constant lockdown, or right here in our own backyards where undocumented individuals are being held in unsafe conditions despite the threat of the virus.

We are insha'Allah using this as a time to ground ourselves in gratitude, an understanding of our privilege, and a commitment to building better circumstances. We are continuing our fight to protect civil rights and promote justice while working with partners, masajid, and the community to take proper action to minimize the spread of the virus.

When dealing with this emergency situation, we remind ourselves and our community to show generosity and grace towards one another, regardless of the hardships we are facing. It is also important to take these preventative measures offered by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We know you are receiving a great deal of messaging right now about COVID-19, as are we, and so we have organized a resource hub on our website. It captures key local resources, additional information about the Shelter-In-Place order, as well as ways you can volunteer to help others.

We must be responsible for acting in community and helping one another so that we are able to come out of this tough time, stronger than before.

In Solidarity,
Qazis
