Countering Islamophobia in Classrooms & Schools - Training for Educators
In the U.S., the fear of terrorism has been used to justify the racial and religious profiling of Muslims and people perceived to be Muslim. Since the 1970s, we've witnessed a steady rise in violent incidents and policies that intimidate, harm, and exclude Arab, Muslim, and immigrant communities. As critical educators for social justice, we have a responsibility to actively confront and dismantle Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism in our classrooms and schools.

Join our learning community of educators as we:
Build understandings about the structural roots of anti-Muslim racism and how it affects our communities
Unpack the dominant myths and narratives around Muslims/Islam
Reframe Islamophobia as only individual acts of bigotry toward an analysis of state violence and systems of oppression
Strategize around meaningful ways to address anti-Muslim racism in classrooms and schools
Leave the training with action steps and questions for further study
Develop skills to speak out against Anti-Muslim discrimination; advocate for policies that respect the rights and dignity of Muslims; and oppose profiling, surveillance, and state violence against the Muslim community, inside and outside of schools
