This special event, which is open to Muslim Americans of all ages and backgrounds, focuses on the important and growing issue of anti-Muslim bullying in schools. Bullying against Muslims is a problem that psychologically, emotionally, and physically hurts children long after their mistreatment. Loved ones of bullying victims are often deeply effected by the consequences, which include behavioral changes and social alienation that can destabilize the entire family.
At this event, Muslim Americans (children, parents, individuals who experienced bullying several years ago) are encouraged to share their experiences with being bullied or with the aftermath of a loved one’s bullying. Additionally, a panel of local experts will be present to explain the issue, its effects, and potential solutions. This town hall is the first in a series of four events KARAMAH will conduct across the United States. Each town hall will focus on one or more civil rights-related issues for which there are significant negative consequences to the Muslim American family.
This event will be streamed live from the KARAMAH website.
This event is supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and co-hosted by KARAMAH and the International Muslim Association at Nova Southeastern University.
