Community Conversation on Racism & Islamophobia

Aug 17 2017

The Centerville-Washington Diversity Council will present a nonpartisan community conversation about racism and Islamophobia at 6:30 pm. Wednesday, Oct. 4 at The Franciscan Center of St. Leonard, 8100 Clyo Road. A continuation of the “Ask A Muslim” program the council offered in March, bring your questions and willingness to communicate and learn. This program, including a short film and open discussion, is a partnership among the Dayton Human Relations Council and Marium Husain, MD, MPH, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.  “As a Muslim, the San Bernardino shootings were a turning point in politics and community dynamics. I finally understood what discrimination meant and how it felt,” says Dr. Husain. “I started the Town Hall program as a medium for community members to ask questions about Islam and help dispel myths. I also wanted this to be a platform from which we could address the fundamental issue of discrimination and racism in our society.” The forum will end by 8:30 p.m. and advanced registration is not required.   

As a follow-up to the discussion, the Council will offer an informal “Coffee and Conversation” event at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the Centerville Panera on N. Main Street.
