Along with the Muslim ban, hate crimes have spiked since election night, leading to increased tension, and continued demonstrations within different communities. Including now, during the holy month of Ramadan.

In Los Angeles, Muslims gathered with Latino groups to break their fast with tacos at the Islamic Center of Santa Ana.
