Key notes: Shaun King & Dr. Marc Lamont Hill

The theme is “Islamophobia & Racism at the Ballot Box”. Hate crimes spike during election cycles, and our speakers will discuss how islamophobia and racism are politicized and utilized as a tools to gather votes for candidates.

Speakers:
Jeffery Shaun King is an American writer, civil rights activist, and co-founder of Real Justice PAC and The North Star. Marc Lamont Hill is an American academic, author, activist, and television personality. He is a Professor of Media Studies and Urban Education at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Islamophobia Studies Center:
The Islamophobia Studies Center strives to resist the spread of Islamophobia through education, empowerment and building communities for social justice. Since its establishment in 2015, the Center has uniquely focused on supporting, collecting and disseminating research on the rising issue of Islamophobia in Western nations, particularly the United States. In response to an urgent need to address increased anti-Muslim sentiment, the Center has (1) established a robust global network of academics, thinkers, practitioners and researchers working collaboratively to challenge Islamophobia locally and globally; (2) conducted research to understand the American Muslim experience, and document the complexities of anti-Muslim sentiment; (3) empowered communities to challenge Islamophobia through evidence-based anti-Islamophobia public education campaigns, publications and practical anti-Islamophobia workshops/training, and (4) provided ‘study abroad’ courses to reshape the Islamophobic narrative among American students on the immediate refugee crisis in Europe.
Projects:
The Islamophobia Studies Center is focused on addressing rising levels anti-Muslim sentiment in the US through evidence-based theoretical/empirical research, data collection (Islamophobia Reporting App) data analysis and research dissemination (Islamophobia Studies Journal, Conferences and Summer-Study Institute Programs). Our Center's robust network of scholars, practitioners and advocates produce quality, open-access publications (journal/reports) that encourage public debate and understanding that is required for the development of strategies that counter anti-Muslim hate in the United States. The journal is a bi-annual academic publication, and the only peer-reviewed journal available on the topic of contemporary and historical islamophobia incidents and theory. The current research underway is based in the medical field, the academic field for educators, and an islamophobia report for the rising tide in India. The medical report aims to prepare doctors in the Bay Area to deal with the adverse mental health effects of islamophobia by way of developing a clinical guide; the K-12 islamophobia report deals with identifying school bullying and problematic curriculum and framing of Islamic culture; and the India report will focus on the issues of islamophobia on the ground in India which is home to one of the largest Muslim populations on the planet, specifically on the issues of love-jihad, Muslim consumption of beef, and the current BJP party policies.
