Rights at Risk: Black Muslim Convening
This convening will bring together Black/African American and African immigrant community leaders to explore the overlapping oppressions of systemic racism and Islamophobia in the criminal justice and immigration systems. The first day programming will include community building to develop a cohort of Black Muslim leaders work on rights, strategic brainstorming and skill building. The second day will include participation in the Detroit Anti-Racism Training (DART 2017) with breakout groups aimed at specific skill building and networking within broader racial justice spaces. Together, this special program aims create a space for community developed solutions for supporting movement work in beleaguered and underserved Black Muslim communities.

Detroit Anti-Racism Training (DART) 2017
We hosted GetSMART (SoCal Muslim Anti-Racism Training) in Los Angeles twice–MuslimARC’s ART is now coming to Detroit for the first time for DART 2017!
This conference aims to bring together organizers and community leaders to build collaborations through critical consciousness raising on racial justice and critical anti-Islamophobia activism to address issues of water, community power, and sanctuary. This is an important moment to mobilize Muslims and allied communities to develop a proactive agenda to build power and counter harmful policies on a local, state, and national level by developing a shared vision for Metro Detroit.
