Prejudice against Muslims has existed in various forms throughout American history, but this issue has become far more prominent throughout the past decade. Join us for an evening symposium to discuss how we can work to address and overcome prejudice and shape our public policy to ensure human rights for all people.

Featuring keynote speaker will be Professor John Bowen, Dunbar-Van Cleve Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis. The event will also feature the art exhibit "Tracks in the Snow" that provides a glimpse into the lives of one of the least known and rapidly expanding populations in America and in Minnesota – the Muslim community.

This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by:
