This toolkit provides promising practices to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim backlash and work towards a positive vision for our communities. These promising practices demonstrate how: building meaningful contact between diverse populations; positive communications strategies; and engaging civic and community leaders can help create a climate in which all people can thrive. The stories in this toolkit illustrate how multi-ethnic and socioeconomically diverse communities are welcoming Muslims and refugees and, in turn, how Muslims and refugees are active civic participants and working alongside their neighbors to build stronger, more resilient, and welcoming communities.
