We will sponsor a discussion on the current level of religious prejudice, primarily in the U.S. and Europe. The rise of the alt-right, incidents in which religious minorities are harassed or targeted by violence, and the prospects of a “Muslim Ban” in the U.S. have aroused concern and fear. This program is intended to provide insight and perspective. Hilary Bernstein, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, will discuss recent indicators regarding the level and intensity of Antisemitism, while Amarah Khan, Associate Director of Global Diversity Initiatives at OSU, will speak to the issue of Islamophobia, both locally and more generally. The event will also address, if only briefly, the targeting of other religious groups in the contemporary world.
