The Hatebusters: Bustin’ Hate With Love, Nationwide!
We are the Hatebusters, and we believe that Anti-Islam hate can be neutralized with love. We have one objective: to bust Anti-Islam hate with love!
Check out what we’re doing and contribute to keep it going for the rest of the year!
Hatebuster trucks have a daily mission of bustin’ hate with love on the streets. These amazing mobile trucks, packed with loving and insightful messages, drive for 10 hours a day to clear up misconceptions about Islam.

Our Hatebuster trucks catch the eyes of many, while spreading love!
Here’s Hatebuster truck #1 in front of City Hall in Baltimore, Maryland!
We also launched Hatebuster Truck #2 onto the streets of New York City.
Hatebuster Truck #2 grabbed the attention of many with this message:
Huge crowds came around to see love:
We asked people to stand and take a picture if they agreed with the messages on the truck. The response was unbelievably positive!
They, and many more, agreed with our messages!
People even stopped us in the street to applaud our work and many gave us their thumbs up!
Hatebuster trucks are also equipped with Hatebuster Heroes!
Hatebuster Heroes are trained volunteers that ride along Hatebuster trucks to engage the public and clarify misconceptions about Islam!
Here’s a Hatebuster Heroine spreading love by giving a rose to someone who agreed with our message!
Let’s continue to bust hate with love!
We are ready to do the foot work, we just need the funds to make it happen. This campaign will allow us to continue rolling our Hatebuster trucks out onto the streets of various cities for the rest of the year!
It will also further increase awareness about our campaign, which will allow us to continue onto other Hate Bustin’ projects we have.
