Countering Islamophobia and Defamation in America

WHAT - The 2005 ISNA Convention - Session 3C - Room 23

TITLE - Countering Islamophobia and Defamation in America

TOPICS - Certain right-wing pundits and policy-makers continue to make a living from defaming Islam. False statements are made in both broadcast and print media that can be challenged legally.

This session will chronicle the rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric in media and politics, introduce the law of defamation and media, and suggest ways in which American Muslims and organizations can use these tools to counter Islamophobia in a proactive manner.

SPEAKER - Arsalan Iftikhar, Corey Saylor

WHERE - The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center - 5555 N. River Road, Rosemont , Illinois 60018
