Two-part series on understanding the origins and impact of bigotry in the U.S. and taking action for positive change

Examine the roots of Islamophobia in anti-Blackness and anti-Semitism and the interconnectedness of other forms of bigotry directed against Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Black, Latinx, Asian, and Indigenous populations.

A panel of speakers will address the history of how knowledge about colonized people was first created, addressing the process of racialization and racism, which leads to xenophobia throughout American history and the phenomenon of what we today call “implicit bias.”

Working from the well-established social science principle that face-to-face education and engagement are the most effective ways to dispel stereotypes and prejudice, panels include group discussions and conclude with calls to action to counter hate and to build an inclusive society based on mutual understanding and solidarity.

A panel presentation will be followed one week later by a group discussion.  Please plan on attending both sessions in order to participate.

Hosted in partnership with the Islamic Networks Group.
