THE NEW RED SCARE: MUSLIMS UNDER SURVEILLANCE AND PERSECUTION

Chamber of Commerce  |   4:45–6:00pm

As a candidate, Donald Trump promised a “Muslim Ban,” and on January 27th this year he delivered. This was the first but will by no means be the last policy act targeting a specific part of the population. Our panelists will discuss the origins, future, and paths of resistance against the monitoring, scapegoating, and persecution of Muslims in America.
