ING Executive Director Maha Elgenaidi will present a diversity seminar to administrators, educators and school staff at the Milpitas Unified School District. This will provide them with an understanding of the challenges faced by Muslim students and parents in the current political environment as well as solutions for addressing these challenges. The first hour will address the impact of anti-Muslim bigotry on Muslim student safety and identity, offering solutions in school policies and a better understanding of Muslims and their faith. The second hour will conclude with guidelines for teaching about religion at school, sharing educational resources for the study of Muslim history and culture.

This seminar will take place at San Jose City College Extension in Milpitas, in LEC 1 and 2. If you are interested in attending this event, please email ING’s Programs Associate Michelle Galecki at [email protected]
