Islamophobia: Understanding Islam and the Experience of American Muslims

May 3 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Sahar Education for Afghan Girls is hosting an evening discussion on Islam and Islamophobia featuring Aneelah Afzali, the Executive Director of American Muslim Empowerment Network, and Sahar Fellow Malahat Mazaher. We will discuss the increase in Islamophobia in our country and how it poses a significant threat to all of us, along with specific concrete actions each of us can take to combat Islamophobia. We will also highlight Sahar’s work on this topic with schoolchildren in Seattle.

We are particularly honored to be joined by Aneelah Afzali – one of the many fantastic speakers from the Seattle Women’s March on January 21st of 2017. If you’re interested in listening to her speech from the Seattle rally, please follow this link.
