Combating Islamophobia

10:45 AM–12:00PM

President Trump’s xenophobic and Islamophobic campaign surfaced some of the uglier currents in American society. Since the election, hate crimes targeting Muslim Americans have continued to rise and mosques have been vandalized. Muslims have been harassed and attacked and prominent Islamophobes have received senior roles in the administration. This panel will explore what the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement can do to defend Jewish and democratic values by adding our voices to the fight against Islamophobia.
