With recent tragedies against different ethnic groups all over the world, George Mason University is doing their part to discuss matters together.
In an effort to keep an open and inclusive environment, the Middle East and Islamic Studies group hosted a town hall with a variety of speakers to talk about things such as Islamophobia, antisemitism, and overall discrimination. Organizers say with a University as diverse as George Mason University, it’s a important to have open dialogue like this.
“We have a very diverse campus and that ocassionally causes conflict, but that also raises incredible opportunities for growth, solidarity, and strengthening alliances among our student body, our faculty, and various other community members,” said Kylie Broderick, Middle East Islamic Studies Program Asst.
The program was the second town hall of the year on the topics of Islamophobia and antisemitism and the group plans to have more.
