Hillel and Islamic Society host event against Islamophobia

 

 

Harvard Hillel and the Harvard Islamic Society hosted a presentation and panel discussion Monday, briefing attendees on Islamophobia at Harvard and around the United States.

The event, called “Stand Up Against Islamophobia,” was the first in a series of events hosted by Harvard Hillel called “Stand Up,” aimed at engaging Harvard's faith groups and addressing discrimination against religious minorities.

Amitai B. Abouzaglo, the event’s moderator, said the goal of the event was “building strong relations—community relations and personal relations—between the different communities on campus.

The first portion of the event was a presentation from Director of External Relations of the Harvard Islamic Society Anwar Omeish ’19, which discussed the existence of institutionalized Islamophobia, defined by Omeish as structural discrimination based on race, culture, religion, or identity.
