Description:

This is a joint event co-hosted by the Muslim Law Students Association, the Middle Eastern Law Students Association, and the Jewish Law Students Association to discuss the history of religious bigotry in America and its recent climb in society. Hate crimes against Muslim and Jewish communities have significantly increased in the past few years with the rise in Islamophobic and Antisemitic rhetoric in the media and elsewhere. We hope to discuss the root cause and how to counteract such rhetoric. Speakers: Linda Sarsour and Rabbi Herbert N. Brockman.
