This workshop teaches the causes and effects of Islamophobia as well as the knowledge, tools, and strategies to address and effectively combat Islamophobia and anti- Muslim prejudice.

    The UNAC national conference will be held at the People’s Forum in New York City. Our conference comes at a time when the US has become exceeding aggressive in pursuing its regime change agenda in one country after another. The military budget continues to rise, and the administration and congress have agreed to start a new program that will militarize space. Many of us who have traveled to other countries that are being attacked by the US militarily or through economic sanctions, coup attempts and propaganda wars understand that people all over the world look to the US peace movement to aid them in their struggle to be able to determine their own future. To live up to these expectations we need to build a strong, unified antiwar movement.
    So, we urge you to join us at the UNAC conference on the weekend of February 21 – 23.
