Increasingly, global threats and domestic political rhetoric are fueling misguided fear, discrimination, and violence against immigrants, recent refugees, Muslims and Arabs. In the midst of the worst refugee crisis in decades, Governor Hogan is one of about 30 governors who have asked the Obama administration not to allow Syrian refugees into their states, despite assurances from top U.S. officials and growing criticism from advocates who say this stance does not reflect American values.
Please join a discussion with four speakers, aimed at creating a greater understanding of anti-immigrant sentiment, Islamophobia and cultural bias in our country and the Baltimore Region. We’ll also hear about some best practices and policies around immigrant/refugee integration. The session will allow us to learn about some of the organizations that are working on these issues and the available tools for making our communities welcoming where everyone feels they belong.
