ReThink workshop: Islamophobia
Friday, January 21, 2011
Facilitator: Zahra Murad
This workshop will include an overview of what Islamophobia is, looks like, and feels like. It will discuss instances of Islamophobic hate activity on the University of Guelph campus (including in the classroom) and will discuss how Islamophobia affects Muslim students.
The ReThink campaign was created to address these issues as they occur on our campus at the University of Guelph. The reality is that injustice, social inequality, violence, and bullying happen everywhere in the world and Guelph is not immune. Over the years, Guelph has become more and more diverse, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we are respectful of the beliefs, cultures, and experiences of all of our fellow students, peers, and workers.
