"The Changing Dynamics of Islamophobia and its Implications on Peaceful and Inclusive Societies" Discussion Panel
Mrs. Sally Kader, USFMEP President, acted as host and moderator for the panel discussion event titled "The Changing Dynamics of Islamophobia and its Implications on Peaceful and Inclusive Societies", at the ECOSOC Chamber of the UN Headquarters in New York City.
The event consisted of two discussion panels, the first addressing how media and social media have become tools to stigmatize and discriminate against Muslims and create a culture of Islamophobia, and the second analyzing how different communities work against discrimination through interfaith dialogue and inter-communal efforts, core goals and principles of the USFMEP.
The event acted as a channel for working to provide the people of the world with information about the Middle East including its history, religions, cultures and political landscape. The ultimate goal is to promote understanding of Middle Eastern culture, through the promotion of religious tolerance, peaceful understanding, and open mindedness.
