Reposted from Unheard Voices of 9/11, which is organizing community hearings in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. Details below. Muslims, Sikhs, South Asians and Arab Americans were victimized twice by 9/11 - by the attacks themselves and by backlash discrimination, profiling and violence. The Unheard Voices project is giving these stories a chance to be heard. Be sure to visit the Unheard Voices of 9/11 website to watch and share your own story, and if you can, attend one of these important community hearings.
