"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.

The event was attended by prominent speakers, leaders and other passoinate voices representing the fight against Islamophobia, and served as "a vessel for dialogue, sharing and discussion in the hope to shed light on this grave issue of basic human rights, beyond the surface of religious identity".
