Vigilant Love officially came together in December 2015 within days of the San Bernardino shooting, as a rapid response to a wave of Islamophobic backlash in Southern California and across the country. The coalition was founded upon the long-standing relationships of Los Angeles-based Muslim American and Japanese American leaders, programs and solidarity since 9/11.
