I Am The Other: Countering Stereotypes, Religious Illiteracy, and Hate Crimes
In the wake of recent hate crimes against the Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, and Sikh communities, we’ve witnessed an increase in ignorance and stereotypes that have lead to violent attacks and dangerous misrepresentations that cause great harm to minority communities. Just in the past few months, a Sikh man in Kent, Washington was attacked, while there have been a string of anti-Semitic incidents and bomb threats to Jewish centers across the country.
Join the Silicon Valley Interreligious Council (SiVIC) and the Hindu American Foundation (HAF) on Sunday, April 30, 2017 for a diverse interfaith panel discussion to address the important issues that are currently facing minority religious communities in the U.S.
Location: Fremont Hindu Temple and Community Center, 3676 Delaware Drive, Fremont, CA 94538. More details can be found on the SiVIC web site .
