Confronting Anti-Muslim Oppression Workshop


Sunday, April 7, 2019 (All day)


1762 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02445, USA
Join the Jewish Muslim Solidarity Committee of Boston Workmen’s Circle and Kavod House Community to unpack how Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism underpin both interpersonal bias and structural oppression, and identify ways to combat both. The workshop will address questions including: > What are Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism, and how do they operate, both nationally and locally? > How do our individual and group identities impact our allyship? > How does this oppression show up in our own communities and what can we do to address it? > How can we support Muslim-led organizing against racism and Islamophobia? Attendance is limited to 50, so please RSVP: Suggested donation: $10-20, to support Muslim Justice League and program costs. Cost should not be a barrier to attendance. Light snacks will be provided. Accessibility: The workshop takes place on the second floor and requires ascending two flights of stairs; we apologize to anyone whom this excludes. BWC is currently in the process of designing and moving into a mobility-accessible home for future events. The workshop is open to all. It was planned with a Jewish audience in mind but we welcome non-Jews to attend as well.
