Islamophobia and Asian-Americans
Presenter: Amer F. Ahmed, Ed.D.
The post-9/11 era in the U.S. has exposed and enhanced prejudice and bigotry towards Muslims and people perceived as Muslim. There is little critical conversation regarding the implications of Islamophobia in relationship to the broader APIA
community who are increasingly subject to racism, profiling and violence that results from it. This session will explore how communities can better address this ongoing issue on our campuses and throughout American society.
