Last year, activists in North Carolina piloted an innovative training program to counter Islamophobia. BORDC/DDF’s George Friday and Manzoor Cheema, an organizer with the Movement to End Racism and Islamophobia, worked with veteran anti-oppression trainers Tema Okun, and Jade Brooks to develop a workshop to help people recognize and counter Islamophobia in themselves, their communities, their movements, and in government policies and programs. 》》》》》》》》》 http://bordc.org/news/countering-islamophobia-workshop/
