Today I woke up excited; I headed to a new city and launched my Patreon. But then I turned on the news and learned about London’s attack.😨💔 I want to send my deepest heartfelt thoughts to everyone there to stay safe and stay strong. There have been so many heartbreaking tragedies this year. And though I don’t post about them often (or them all) I am aware of the world around me and what goes on in it (even if I’m a day late). And I want to spread a message of love to you all. 💞 Not just in London but in Houston, Florida, Mexico: you’ve all been hit by scary and tragic events. I wish I was Captain Planet and I could rescue you all and make it better. 💗I don’t have super powers but what I can do is create art that will make your hearts a little less heavy. I’ve also donated to multiple organizations that will reach you on my behalf.🙌 Please stay safe and keep spreading love. Together we are so much more powerful than apart. And feeling happiness is so much better than hate. I will do my best to use my art to spread love and hope. I love you all so much! 💕 #staystrong #iloveyou

Boston Launches Anti-Islamophobia Poster Campaign
A poster offers advice on how a bystander can help someone experiencing anti-Muslim harassment — without challenging the harasser. "Education is key to fighting intolerance," the mayor says.

The city of Boston is launching a new poster campaign to fight Islamophobia by encouraging bystanders to intervene, in a non-confrontational way, if they witness anti-Muslim harassment.

Starting Monday, the city began installing 50 posters around the city with advice on what to do if you see Islamophobic behavior. The posters recommend sitting by a victim of harassment and talking with them about a neutral subject while ignoring the harasser.

“The technique is called ‘non-complementary behavior,’ and is intended to disempower an aggressive person by countering their expectations,” The Associated Press reports.

The cartoon how-to guide was drawn by a Paris-based artist named Maeril and translated into English for The Middle Eastern Feminist group on Facebook.
