Our most requested on-the-ground workshop is now coming to a computer near you!
On the evening of September 5th, we will be presenting MuslimARC's Racism 101 workshop in webinar format for the first time.
This workshop will help participants understand how racism works to oppress groups within the United States. Participants will identify their own position within the racial hierarchy of the United States. Participants will gain skills on how to promote anti-racist behavior in themselves and in their community.
The webinar includes a lecture portion, self-work, and small/large group exercises. It will be held over Zoom and participants will be able to interact with other participants as well as the instructor, MuslimARC's Executive Director Namira Islam.
We request that participants have a working video camera, stable internet connection, headphones/headset to for clearer audio, and that they join via video for the webinar.
We welcome Muslims and non-Muslims and people from all ethnic backgrounds to attend.
(Namira Islam’s MuslimARC) presentation just provided a catalyst for something that seriously needed to be brought out into the open. I knew (she) had gotten through to people when they started sharing their personal experiences, and experiences of people they know. And the activities forced us all to interact one on one, and really hear one another’s stories and perspectives.I learned SO much, and empathized with many on a whole new level.
