AHA Emails #5: Discrimination!
Five distinguished speakers will be joining us. From the press release:
"Keynote speaker Ahmed Rehab, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Chicago, will discuss the definitions, origins, nature, motivations, machinations and consequences of Islamophobia. Rashid Dar, a UW alumnus and former program director at Park 51, a planned Islamic community center near the site of the 9/11 attacks, will share his experiences. UW Professor Asifa Quraishi-Landes plans to discuss the anti-Sharia movement, and UW Professor Jennifer Loewenstein will address the reaction to the "Innocence of Muslims" video. Huffington Post writer Daniel Tutt will then speak on strategies for responding to Islamophobia in a larger historical context."
It sounds really fascinating, so you should totally show up! Cya there.
