Countering islamophobia through advocacy and public education

In July 2016, the CCR offered a webinar, led by  Amira Elghawaby, National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM)

NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the human rights and civil liberties of Canadian Muslims (and by extension of all Canadians), promoting their public interests, building mutual understanding and challenging Islamophobia and other forms of xenophobia. 

This webinar was organized as part of the Refugees Welcome Here! campaign, led by Amnesty Canada (anglophone and francophone sections), and the CCR. The session focused on effective strategies and practical tools to address Islamophobia through advocacy, public education, civic engagement, as well as practical advice on challenging negative stereotypes about Islam, muslims, and effectively countering media narratives.
