“We Need To Talk”: Muslims of Southern Nevada

September 6 at 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm


The post-9/11 generation has grown up familiar with anti-Muslim political rhetoric, federal immigration restrictions referred to as โ€œMuslim travel bans,โ€ and other forms of discrimination. While this fear, prejudice, and hatred of Muslims can lead to hostility and intolerance, there are individuals and groups working to break down these barriers and build community in Southern Nevada.

This “We Need To Talk”ย  discussion will examine this history of Islamophobia and share the experiences of several Muslim-Americans who are working to dismantle stereotypes, advocate for justice, and build mutual understanding. Moderated by Claytee White, Director of the UNLV Oral History Research Center, and featuring panelist Ahlam Hamdan, Founder of LV Community of Hope; Athar Haseebullah, Executive Director, ACLU of Nevada; and Fateen Seifullah, Imam, Masjid As-Sabur. This event takes place in Greenspun Hall on the UNLV Campus.
