reMARC: the MuslimARC Blog
Thank you for joining us for #BeyondTheBan. On the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision solidifying the Muslim Ban, we gather at this event to explore the history and impact of structural Islamophobia. Through a moderated panel discussion, experts will discuss the law surrounding the Ban, links between societal and systematic Islamophobia, and frameworks to understand Islamophobia. The panel will provide analysis alongside calls to action to challenge structural Islamophobia at its roots, resist systemic bigotry of all kinds, and amplify the voices of people currently impacted by the Ban today.
We encourage you to livetweet this panel using the hashtag #BeyondTheBan. Other hashtags to use today include #repealtheban, #noMuslimBanEver, #nobanact.
