UConn Hartford - Combating Islamophobia: A Form of Racism

Wednesday, November 8, 2017
12:45pm – 2:00pm

Hartford Campus
Hartford Public Library's Atrium

The university community has designated Wednesday, November 8, 2017, as a day of reflection, learning, sharing, and transformation focused on confronting racism in our university, our state, and our nation. The Associated Student Government (ASG) and World Club will be passing out blue ribbons to wear as a symbol of unity in our fight against racism. Then join us in the Hartford Public Library Atrium from 12:45 – 2:00pm and stand in unity with UConn Hartford Muslim Student Association (MSA) as they conduct their midday prayers. After prayers, stay for a vibrant panel discussion on Islamophobia with special guests Imam Sami Aziz (Muslim Chaplain at Wesleyan University), Dr. Lisa Werkmeister Rozas (Associate Professor at UConn School of Social Work), and Samia Hussein (Muslim Coalition of Connecticut, President).
