About This Workshop

Join MORSL and McGill student leaders for a workshop exploring the types of hatred affecting Muslim and Jewish communities: Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. Students of all faith backgrounds (or of no faith background at all) are invited to gather to consider the origins, manifestations, and impacts of these forms of discrimination. Through personal reflection and community sharing, we will work to forge interfaith connections and gain greater understanding of one another.

Refreshments provided.
