Welcome to the Muslim Indo-Caribbean Collective (MICC)

The Muslim Indo-Caribbean Collective (MICC) was created recognizing the need to;

 

(1) to create a space to unapologetically unpack, share, learn, unlearn, reclaim, decolonize, resist colonial legacies of intergenerational trauma/exploitation (Decolonize Mental Health) so we can stand in solidarity as well as connect over the multiple intersectional truths, voices, lived experiences and positionalities of being simultaneously Muslim, Indo-Caribbean and the descendant of indentured labourers displaced by colonization from Hindostan (present-day South Asia) to the Caribbean,

 

(2) to have thoughtful representation and amplify Muslim Indo-Caribbean voices, truths, lived experiences in spaces they are marginalized, silenced and invisibilized in (such as Indo-Caribbean, Indentured Diasporic, Caribbean, West Indian, Indian, South Asian and Muslim spaces),

 

(3) to address Anti-Muslim Racism affecting Muslim Indo-Caribbeans across these community spaces, which is rarely acknowledged much-less addressed,

 

(4) to have a space where Muslim Indo-Caribbeans can be unapologetically Muslim Indo-Caribbean, where we do not need to code-switch like we do in other spaces (Indo-Caribbean, Indentured Diasporic, Caribbean, West Indian, Indian, South Asian and Muslim spaces), where we are unable to express our authentic selves or live in our full truths
