Creating Inclusive and Equitable Communities
A Call to Action
Presented by Islamic Networks Group (ING)
for Ashby Village members and volunteers.
The panel focuses on the shared history and diverse breadth of experiences from the following groups: Muslim Americans, Jewish Americans, Indigenous Peoples, African Americans, Latinx Americans, and Asian Americans. After opening with a discussion on the formation and dissemination of dominant narratives, each panelist speaks about how this has manifested in her or his community and what we can do together to counter racism.
Working from the well-established social science principle that face-to-face education and engagement are the most effective ways to dispel stereotypes and prejudice, panels include group discussions with the audience and conclude with calls to action to counter hate and to build an inclusive society based on mutual understanding and solidarity.
The Intercultural Speakers Bureau (ICSB) addresses and counters racism across racial, ethnic, and religious groups by bringing together a panel of speakers from marginalized communities experiencing bigotry in the United States to educate about how racist narratives about a people were formed and framed in history and then embedded in culture institutionally and through implicit biases.
