Fifty Muslims in New Zealand were killed last month when a white supremacist opened fire during congregational prayers at two mosques in the city of Christchurch. The incident once again highlighted the threat of white nationalist violence on minority faith communities in the West, recalling similar attacks on places of worship in Canada's Quebec, and in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the United States.

But these communities refuse to give into hate and fear, standing together worldwide and sharing lessons in the aftermath of tragedy.

In this episode, The Stream speaks with survivors from Al Nur mosque, the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre, and Tree of Life synagogue to learn how these communities are healing. Join the conversation.
