April 26 webinar: What is Islamophobia and how to counter it?

April 10, 2018

In recent years, you may have heard the term “Islamophobia” – but what does it mean?

AUMA’s Welcoming and Inclusive Communities initiative is pleased to host a webinar that will explore this complex topic and how municipal leaders can empower themselves with facts and strategies to counter local attitudes or actions that unfairly target Muslims.

Guest speakers include Nakita Valerio of the Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council, and Irfan Chaudhry, a hate crime researcher and Director of the Office of Human Rights, Diversity, and Equity at MacEwan University.

This free webinar will take place on April 26, 2018 from 12:00 – 1:15 p.m. and is designed for both elected officials and municipal staff at all levels. Register online today.
