Workshop Tracks

Note: There is a participant capacity limit per workshop. Workshops that have over 30 participants will require an additional facilitator.

Session 1: Introduction to Anti-Racism: Mapping the Impact of Racial Ideologies 

This module focuses on the LEARNING Competency by providing an introductory session on how racial ideologies impact our lives. We begin by establishing community guidelines to set the stage for the learning and conversation that will ensue, as well leave room for participants to add to this. Through clear definitions, interactive activities, and conversation participants are introduced to the four levels of racism from the internal aspects to external (ideological, internalized, interpersonal, institutional). In learning about the four levels of racism, we are grounded in an Islamic framework. 

 

Session  2: Internalized Racism

This module focuses on the SELF-ASSESSMENT competency by exploring the ways participants have internalized racism as well as how to embody MuslimARC values to establish a practice of antiracism in their daily lives. This module focuses on self-assessment to ground racial and social identities in antiracist values and aligned actions. By the end of this session, participants will utilize their self-assessment to begin a journey of racial healing embodying ARCValues of positive self-identity, appreciation for diversity, mutual recognition, intercultural dialogue, and  justice and equity.

 

Session 3: Interpersonal Racism

This session builds on our ACCOUNTABILITY competency, providing a faith-based framework for countering harmful interpersonal racism. Together, participants will review case studies and learn the gift of our community “calling us in” on the intentional and unintentional harm we commit, how to verbally respond in these moments of call-in, and the ways in which we can create change in our actions to prevent this type of harm again. Above all, this session uplifts the Prophetic narrative of compassionate mercy and challenges how we can implement these prophetic ways into our actions as individuals, colleagues, and businesses.

 

Session 4:  Institutional  Racism

This session focuses on the IMPLEMENTATION Competency. Participants will examine the ways in which racial inequities shape People of Color led organizations. Participants will explore case studies and brainstorm strategies on how to counter supremacist culture organizations. Participants will close out the series with commitments to continue being changemakers in all four dimensions (Ideological, Internal, Interpersonal, and Ideological)

 

We must approach anti-Muslim bias not only as religious tolerance or security rights issues but also as a racial justice issue that requires a systems change approach. MuslimARC offers a 10-hour workshop series composed of five modules from MuslimARC’s Critical Anti-Islamophobia track, a workshop series that empowers participants to recognize the systemic roots of anti-Muslim discrimination and their effects on popular culture, education, civil discourse, and government policy. Through presentations and interactive activities, participants will identify and connect examples of Islamophobia in global and domestic contexts.
