Petra Alsoofy, one of the founding members of Grand Valley State University’s Muslim Student Association and the Outreach and Partnerships Manager at Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, will be giving the 2020 interfaith leadership lecture. Islamophobia isn’t just a threat to American Muslims. Research shows it’s just one branch on the tree of bigotry that impacts all Americans. Anti-Muslim attitudes don’t just impact people—they threaten democracy and rule of law. Petra will present ISPU’s research examining the impact of Islamophobia on the wider public, as well as recommendations to combat it.
To attend, join us in RM 2204 of the Kirkhof Center on GVSU’s campus.
