"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor, is the mind of the oppressed." -Steve Biko
This quote provides the framework through which this training will be conducted; that in order to dismantle structural and institutional oppression, folks must undo the oppression they have internalized. With the perpetuation of Islamophobia as a consistent part of the Muslim experience, the goal of this training is to help the community identify the ways in which they may have internalized this form of oppression. The focus of the training will be on identifying manifestations of internalized Islamophobia and to discuss interventions towards the self and community.
***This is a Muslim-only event***
Dr. Maha Hilal will lead the training and can answer any questions you might have prior.
