On October 21, 2001, The Boston Globe featured an essay by Christina Safiya Tobias-Nahi, an American Muslim who works for the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University, an organization "founded in 1996 to support racial and ethnic justice through research and advocacy." The editorial discusses several stories of discrimination Muslims have faced in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks. Tobias-Nahi has been active in the Civil Rights Project's working group to address Muslim civil rights concerns.
