Know and Defend Your Rights with Azadeh Shahshahani and Manzoor Cheema of Project South

Holsti-Anderson Room 153
Rubenstein Library

Learn about your rights when approached by law enforcement agencies (police, FBI, ICE, etc), and your rights to freedom of religion and freedom of expression. The presentation will also focus on the interconnection between anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, anti-immigrant/anti-refugee bigotry, and other forms of oppression. The presenters will make a comparison between structural racism and institutional Islamophobia. They will also discuss strategies for building a stronger grassroots movement against racism and Islamophobia. The presentation will include practical examples of grassroots organizing in the U.S South that allowed for changing the balance of power and gaining local victories.

Sponsored by DISC and the Center for Muslim Life at Duke University
