Speaker Series Event: The role of Civil Society in addressing Islamophobia

A socially cohesive society is one which works towards the wellbeing of all its members, fights exclusion and marginalisation, creates a sense of belonging, promotes trust and offers its members the opportunity of upward mobility.

Civil society has a key role in engaging with and educating the community and building partnerships between key stakeholders that will prevent and respond to incidents of racism and Islamophobia. 

This speaker series will discuss how civil society can help overcome the marginalisation of Australian Muslims and act as allies to Australian Muslims against Islamophobia.
