Islamophobia and the irrational fear of Muslims date back centuries, but over the last 15 years, it has become much more prevalent in our everyday lives. This presentation will highlight current events and how Islamophobia has perpetuated in the United States and the impact it has on the Muslim community and those perceived as Muslims. Differences can be found in Muslim religious and cultural practices and in this course, the audience will learn about the complexities of the Muslim identity and stereotypes. Other topics that will be addressed are current laws, government surveillance practices, immigration, and hate crimes. A position of the presentation will include a panel of UCSC students who will share their experiences of being Muslim at UCSC. This interactive presentation is aimed at increasing multicultural competence among attendees and developing ways to challenge Islamophobia in our everyday lives
