Event description

Description

What does Islamophobia look like in Hamilton? Who are the local heroes addressing this issue? How can their work be supported and amplified? How does Islamophobia intersect with other challenges facing Muslim communities in Hamilton?

You know the answer to these questions, and we'd like to learn from you.

The Inspirit Foundation in collaboration with the McMaster Womanists would like to invite you to an intimate one-day knowledge exchange and sharing circle: Supporting Muslim Communities–Mapping Local and National Networks.

This workshop is part of Inspirit’s national strategy to gather information on how they can better support Muslim communities across Canada. It will also be an opportunity to exchange knowledge and strategies with like-minded organizations, educators, activists and individual Muslims.

This workshop aims to:
• Gather information on the different ways Islamophobia manifests in Hamilton
• Learn how local initiatives and projects that address Islamophobia can be further supported
• Share Inspirit’s strategy for addressing Islamophobia with a focus on how we are using data from our Young Muslims in Canada Study

We hope you will join us.

Breakfast, lunch, snacks and a light dinner will be served. This is a free event and is by invite only. Spaces are limited; please RSVP to reserve your spot.
