BGSU, Bowling Green to address ‘Islamophobia’

BOWLING GREEN, O.— In the wake of recent concerns about intolerance and violence targeting Muslims, Bowling Green State University and the city of Bowling Green are hosting two panel discussions on “Islamophobia” in our region. The events are part of the Not In Our Town initiative.

Representatives from the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, Canton Response to Hate Crimes Coalition, BGSU and the Bowling Green community will address the term “Islamophobia” and the concerns facing Muslims in northwest Ohio and the United States.

The first discussion will be held at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 27 in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater (Room 206). A second event will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in the Wood County District Public Library Atrium. Both events are free and open to the public.
