In recent years, the United States has witnessed an increase in xenophobic and Islamophobic rhetoric. The prevalence of inaccurate information about immigrants and Muslims has resulted in significant fear and mistrust in many communities. This panel discussion will present facts about these two specific groups in order to promote greater understanding and empower audience members to engage in informed activism.
Our center's own Dr. Ahmet Tekelioglu will be speaking, as well as Amber Jamil, Executive Director of the American Pakistan Foundation, Dr. Besheer Mohamed, senior researcher at Pew Research Center, and Dr. Patricia Maulden from the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
This event is free and open to the public with registration. Please register via Eventbrite here.
