Join us for an engaging discussion titled "Islamapobia and the Three Evils of Society." Our Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Hatem Bazian, Co-founder and Professor of Islamic Law and Theology at Zaytuna College. Dr. Bazian will look back at Martin Luther King's last speech on the three evils of society: militarism, materialism and racism, which he critiqued and offered alternatives to the future of American society. "Islamaphobia today emerges out of the same three evils that are utilized to target and demonize Muslims."
