Islamophobia for Educators

In this course, participants will deepen their understanding of what Islamophobia is, what it looks like in schools and society, and the impact it has on students and families. They will have the opportunity to reflect on unlearn designs as provocations that connect to individual and systemic aspects of Islamophobia. Resources will be provided to encourage participants to continue to build their understanding of Islamophobia so that they can work to dismantle it in their schools and classrooms.
