A London, Ontario youth organization, was recently formed to bring education and awareness to Islamophobia, and they have released a powerful video to honour their friend Yumnah, who was killed when her family was run down by a truck in what police have called a hate-motivated attack.
Maryam Al-Sabawi is one of the founders of the Youth Coalition Combating Islamophobia (YCCI).
On the organization's website, after the June 6, 2021 attack that killed four members of the Afaaal family, her feelings of helplessness and fear of such attacks continued to grow.
That led her to create a group, “for all those who felt like me,” reads the group’s website.
To mark the one year anniversary of the attack, YCCI has released a video, To Yumnah With Love.
