On the call we cover Trump’s Muslim ban 2.0, and how designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization will negatively impact Muslim civil society, and why Obama’s Countering Violent Extremism program will be even more problematic under Trump. We also review training curriculum and resources that our members groups have created and that you may use to host a workshop, lead a training, and improve solidarity through action in your community. We hear from activists around the country about what they are doing to confront Islamophobia in their communities. Click here to find the resources discussed on our call.
