What is a Hate Crime?Say Something.Home Page

In the weeks and months following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, CPHV received many reports of harassment and violence directed at people who were perceived to be Muslim and/or Arabic around the state. Alarmed by these disturbing reports, CPHV began investigating and documenting incidents of harassment in the targeted communities. We used this investigation to develop policy and outreach recommendations and programs that would provide the critical support needed for members of Maine’s Muslim and Arab communities.

You will be able to download a copy of the report, After 9-11: Understanding the Impact on Muslim Communities in Maine, soon.
