Addressing Islamophobia: Dispelling Myths to Confront Hate and Discrimination...

The post-9/11 era in the U.S. has exposed a significant degree of prejudice and bigotry towards Muslim people, resulting in a spike in hate crimes directed towards Muslims.

This program will benefit participants interested in learning more about Islam and Islamophobia while highlighting what we can do to confront challenges we face in the months and years ahead

Amer F. Ahmed, Director of Intercultural Teaching and Faculty Development at UMass, will be the featured speaker. Q&A to follow.
