Event Details

There is a pressing need to turn public spaces where Muslims have been traumatized into spaces where solidarity is strengthened. While anti-Muslim sentiments have long existed in North America—culminating in spectacular tragedy during the Quebec City Mosque shooting—the broader Canadian public are becoming more and more adept at responding whenever Islamophobic incidents occur. Nevertheless, there are many who aren’t sure how to extend their solidarity beyond those moments of tragedy. This workshop will help participants explore simple actions they can take based on their level of comfort and their circles of influence.

 

Participants will come out of this workshop with a solid understanding of:

  1. How Islamophobia manifests at an interpersonal level in day-to-day life
  2. How they can foster deeper and more meaningful relationships with Muslims in their circles
  3. How they can support Muslim communities in the longer term beyond moments of tragedy

Date: November 29th
Time: 6-9 PM
Location: George Brown College, Room Number TBC
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier free space. Subway tokens available to attendees by request.
