This event is related to the resistance towards receiving refugees from Syria, increased anti-Muslim rhetoric, and growing attitudes of intolerance. The aim of the event is to highlight these issues – and to identify ways to make Gainesville a welcoming community. It will facilitate discussions on Islam and inter-faith relations, the refugee crisis in Syria, and the role of the media in shaping public perception of these issues. The event will provide opportunities to get involved; ranging from activities within our community to offering support for the Syrian refugees. Come learn more about what is being done in Gainesville and how you can be involved!

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Hatem Bazian, Ph.D, Philosophy and Islamic Studies, UC Berkeley.
Other speakers include Ester Romeyn (UF), Justin Baba (Arab Students’ Association), Iman Zawahry (UF), Hassan Shibly (CAIR) and Terje Ostebo (UF).

This event is sponsored by Daughters of Abraham,Center for Global Islamic Studies at the University of Florida, Welcoming Gainesville, inc. and Gainesville Interfaith Alliance for Immigrant Justice.
