Here is a website continually developing (just put some new materials on it this week) specifically for community college/early undergraduate educators who want to internationalize their curriculum!!! A number of Title VI National Resource Centers on a variety of world areas are coming together to put information on it. You can find background information for yourself or to hand out to students, curricular materials, PD opportunities, movie/book suggestions, links to great resources, and more. Best of all, it’s searchable by subject, world area, etc.

In 2018, the Council on American-Islamic Relations reported that anti-Muslim bias incidents and hate crimes had increased 83 and 21%respectively from April 1 to June 30 of that year compared to the first quarter. Alarmingly, the report found that incidents involving government agencies such as the FBI and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including incidents that involved the denial of religious accommodations, rose by 60% in the same time period.
