As an organization providing support to community members, we would like to invite you and your staff to participate in the Digital Anti-Racism (D.A.R.E.) Two-Part Workshop Series.
Workshop One: Wednesday June 1, 2022
Anti-Islamophobia 101: Unpacking Islamophobia and how Islamophobia further marginalizes Black and Indigenous Muslims, queer Muslims, and Muslims with disabilities.
The Anti-Islamophobia 101 Virtual Workshop seeks to address the realities of Islamophobia and the way in which it operates within Canadian society. Learners will have an opportunity to challenge their own thoughts and think outside of their perceptions. Through critically examining the impacts that this system of oppression has on the lives of Muslims living in Canada, learners will be equipped with the required tools to be an active ally to counter Islamophobia.
Learning outcomes include an increased understanding of: what Islamophobia is and how it works within our society; gendered Islamophobia; intersectional identities; and how to collectively take action against racism and Islamophobia.
Workshop Two: Wednesday June 22, 2022
Countering Cyberhate 1O1: Understanding cyberhate and online extremism to effectively counter online hate speech and narratives effectively.
The Countering Cyberhate 1O1 Virtual Workshop aims to empower racialized women and girls, and those working to serve racialized women and girls, to better understand online hate speech and extremism, including counterspeech and counter-narrative. With the incorporation of real-life examples, alongside live discussions on effective strategies to counter online hate, participants will have an increased capacity to recognize online hate and build the required skills and resources to counter it.
Learning outcomes include an increased understanding of: online hate; counterspeech; how to individually engage in counterspeech online; and how to collectively and appropriately engage in counterspeech online.
Participants attending both workshops will be provided with a certificate.
The D.A.R.E. Workshop Series is being funded by the Government of Canada and is being delivered in partnership with the Canadian Council of Muslim Women.
Note: you will need to register for both sessions separately on the event page (register for the first ticket and then again for the second ticket).
