WHO WE ARE
We envision a diverse, compassionate and inclusive America that is free of prejudice and hate
To reduce prejudice towards American Muslims and marginalized communities by addressing implicit biases in individuals and sources of implicit discrimination
On February 10, 2015, Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha (Our Three Winners) were killed in their Chapel Hill home in a hate crime. This crime was not only a shock to the families but to so many people around the world.
Though American Muslims and marginalized groups have been no stranger to hate violence, there have been few tried interventions that have successful prevented these crimes from happening in the first place.
With increasingly demonizing rhetoric towards American Muslims and marginalized groups and a rise of hate crimes Our Three Winners Foundation (OTW) has an especially important role to play in disrupting the rampant hate that risks becoming the status quo. OTW was created to honor the short, but rich lives of Deah, Yusor, and Razan and to develop systematic and lasting solutions and interventions to mitigate prejudice, bigotry, and hate crimes.
