There are 1.8 billion Muslim people worldwide and Islam is currently the second largest religion in the world next to Christianity. Despite the fact that there are so many Muslims in the world, in many places there is a lack of understanding about Muslim people. In addition, anti-Muslim bigotry—the fear, hatred and discrimination of Muslim people—is manifesting itself in personal biases, stereotyping, bullying, biased rhetoric, hate crimes and more.  

The following education resources include lesson plans, children’s books, teaching tips and strategies, discussion guides for parents/family members and civil rights resources to help educators and others address the topics of Muslim people, anti-Muslim bigotry and refugees with young people.
