This year, the United Nations is celebrating its 75th birthday, and the Unitarian Universalist Association Office at the UN, in collaboration with the Canadian Unitarian Council, will be commemorating that anniversary with a special virtual event co-sponsored by the NGO Committee on Human Rights: “Our Goal of World Community: the United Nations at 75.” In the current moment of simultaneous global political, social, economic, health, and climate crises, continued involvement with and investment in international cooperation could not be more critical.

Islamophobia and Race: What Are We Afraid Of?

Friday, October 23, 2020 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM Eastern
Sponsored by the UU@UN, the NGO Committee on Human Rights, Burma Task Force.
Join us for a global conversation on faith-based discrimination and ethnic genocide. This discussion will explore the experiences of the Muslim community worldwide, while examining the intersectional ways in which Islamophobia and racism interact to perpetuate harmful preconceptions and prejudice. Speakers representing Myanmar, Sudan, Tibet, and the United States will reflect on their unique sociocultural identity and how Islamophobia continues to intricately impact multiple dimensions of their lives. As we interrogate structural and interpersonal bias against those who practice Islam, we should be asking ourselves: What are we afraid of? Click Event details below to register in advance for this meeting.
