Event Description

Islamophobia. It exists, embedded in societal structures, manifesting itself in both the private and public spheres. But, what can be done to challenge Islamophobia and stem its growing tide?

This interactive session will allow participants to explore this question by addressing the following:
● What is Islamophobia?
● How can we explain its growing pervasiveness?
● How is it manifested?
● What is its impact?
● What does it mean to be an ally?
