Islamophobia in Canada: Educational Resources
In the aftermath of another fatal attack against Muslims in Canada, and in anticipation of a national governmental summit to strategize in response to the victimizing ideology, Noor Cultural Centre reminds you of our numerous educational resources on Islamophobia in Canada. Addressing Islamophobia requires understanding the phenomenon in its breadth and depth and, specifically, recognizing its long-standing and global history, its systemic nature, and its perpetration by all sectors of society beyond individual acts of mass violence.
All information communicated in Noor Cultural Centre resources is referenced, and supported by statistical data and academic analysis.
