FEAR INC.: CONFRONTING ISLAMOPHOBIA in AMERICA, featuring REZA ASLAN

Event Date: 
Thursday, February 23, 2017 -
4:00pm to 7:00pm
Details: 

Reza Aslan is an internationally renowned writer, commentator, professor, producer and scholar of religions.  In a world where Muslim people are so often painted with one sweeping prejudicial brush, Aslan’s principled and logical defense is a direly needed corrective.  Rich in historical and factual detail, his talk is a wake-up call for North Americans to confront and abolish hatred and discrimination against Muslim people—otherwise known as Islamophobia.  As the American Muslim population is predicted to more than double over the next two decades (from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030), eradicating Islamophobia for good should be first and foremost in the minds of everyone who dreams of a more peaceful, equitable world.  Part of the Levin Family Dean’s Forum.  Free and open to the public (doors open at 4:00 pm).
