LEVinar: Islamophobia in Schools

Although it has been 20 years since the tragic events of September 11, Islamophobia is still a challenge in Washington state schools.

In this webinar, we have assembled a statewide panel of students, educators, and community leaders to describe the impacts of Islamophobia and share strategies and resources to address Islamophobia when it arises. Our panelists are Maham Khan, a student at West Valley High School in Yakima; Dana Ahmed, a student at the University of Washington; Aneelah Afzali, Executive Director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound; Naghmana Sherazi, with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Gonzaga University and candidate for Spokane City Council; Sabiha Khan, a history teacher at Kamiakin High School in Kennewick and community advocate in the Tri-Cities; and Zahra Khan-Roach, Executive Director of the Benton Franklin Children’s Developmental Center and member of the Pasco City Council.

Closed captioning is available in English and Spanish.
