Antisemitism, Islamophobia, and the Intersections of Racism and Religious Prejudice: A Conservation with Jewish and Muslim American Community Leaders

Islamic Networks Group and the Freedom Forum are presenting a collaborative workshop to address the intersection of religious and racial bigotry. Drawing from our organizations’ respective education programs, this workshop will present examples of effective pedagogies to engage in dialogue about the racialization of religious minorities and to counter racist and religion-based forms of bigotry. This workshop will also include a small panel focused on the intersections of antisemitism and Islamophobia with racism, as well as attacks on democracy and civil liberties. The panel will be interactive, inviting audience reaction and reflection. In conducting this workshop, we hope to contribute toward improving interfaith dialogue which promotes both religious literacy and anti-racist education.
