Discussing, Dissecting and Destorying Islamophobia

After years of exposing the roots of Islamophobia, the threat and real identity of ISIS, and engaging in global advocacy to bring Islamophobia to the forefront, The Muslims of America experienced its own real-life threat in the Spring of 2015 which made the fight against evil even more personal. Its congregation of Sunni Muslims, predominately African American, in an upstate New York hamlet known as Holy Islamberg, was the target of a foiled Islamophobic terror plot by a right wing domestic extremist named Robert Doggart of Tennessee, according to FBI officials.  The story received no media coverage for more than one month. The government issued no statement and America was in the dark.  It was only when residents of H. Islamberg began their own grassroots campaign to bring the matter to the American public did the story make headlines.  The news spread and the case gained attention internationally thanks in part to social media and other determined activists and journalists who investigated for themselves.

Thrust into the spotlight, the small community has been featured on various, radio and television programs and print media.  Its congregants have spoken at national conferences on Islamophobia and xenophobia. This conference honors all who have suffered Islamophobia.  The conference will bring together activists, lawyers, advocates, journalists, scholars, educators to examine, among other things, the root causes of Islamophobia, media bias, the war on Muslim children, Islamophobic policies and trends and ways to expose and combat it.
