Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights’ Speak Truth to Power (STTP) program introduces its newest lesson plan on Islamophobia with a discussion on using education to fight prejudice, discrimination and bigotry. Our education program offers more than 50 lessons taught to millions of students all over the world.
Our panel discussion, hosted by the American Federation of Teachers, features views from across the partisan divide as we seek to build consensus and engagement around combating Islamophobia. Panelists include:
Mohamed Abdel-Kader, former Obama Administration Deputy Assistant Secretary in the International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) Office at the U.S. Department of Education
Suhail Khan, former Bush Administration legal counsel and transportation adviser
Meira Neggaz, Executive Director of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding
Mona Al-Hayani, history teacher at Toledo Early College High School
Moderated by John Heffernan, Executive Director of Speak Truth To Power at Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
We hope you’ll join us for a lively conversation on how to empower the next generation of human rights defenders.
