2023 Islamophobia Gala | Newark

March 18 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$50 – $1000

ISC’s Annual Fundraising Gala & Dinners will take place this year on March 18 & 19th, in Newark and Sacramento respectively, 2023’s theme is “The New Crusades: Islamophobia & the Global War on Muslims”. Join us for dinner right before Ramadan begins; Professor Khaled Beydoun will be going over materials from and releasing his new book which lucidly illustrates how converging systems of subordination, power, and violence related to Islamophobia are experienced across the globe.

Prof. Beydoun’s trenchant analysis and direct testimony from Muslims on the ground reveal how Islamophobia acts as a unifying global thread of state and social bigotry, instigating both liberal and right-wing hate-mongering. Whether imposed by way of hijab bans in France, state-sponsored hate speech and violence in India, or the network of concentration camps in China, Islamophobia unravels into distinct systems of demonization and oppression across the post-9/11 geopolitical landscape. Islamophobia is not only a worldwide phenomenon—it stands as one of the world’s last bastions of acceptable hate.

May God bless all those who choose to donate this year, purify our work and reward you all ten-fold in this life and the next. We look forward to hosting you!
