Come join our (virtual) BRAVE Communities Conversation with community champions that will share their expert knowledge and lived experiences. In the past twenty years, the United States has witnessed an increase in xenophobic and Islamaphobic rhetoric due to the 9/11/01 attacks. The prevalence of misrepresentation and inaccurate narratives about immigrants, Muslims, and Brown people have resulted in increased biases and bigotry. significant fear, and mistrust.
Listen and learn from our panelists as they share their stories of the challenges they continually face and what we can do as a community to stand up in solidarity and be BRAVE.
