Sunday 7 November | Closing session
(2-5 PM tentative)

Nine years after 9/11, anti-Muslim rhetoric has escalated in the U.S.  While some commentators seem to be encouraging stereotypes and misconceptions, many interfaith dialogue groups have provided an opportunity for Americans to become more acquainted with Islam and American Muslims.  We will explore who makes up the American Muslim community, their positions on issues such as terrorism and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and why Islamophobia is on the increase today.  We'll also look at what steps we can take to address this issue and the policy implications for the U.S.
