The workshop is aimed at empowering individuals and communities across Canada with training and tools on:

The Anti-Islamophobia 1O1 virtual workshop seeks to address the realities of Islamophobia and the way in which it operates within Canadian society. The workshop will help participants critically examine the impacts of Islamophobia on the lives of Muslims living in Canada and how it further marginalizes Black and Indigenous Muslims, queer Muslims, and Muslims with disabilities. Participants will learn how to be active allies to counter Islamophobia.
· Increased understanding of what Islamophobia is and how it works within our society.
· Increased understanding of gendered Islamophobia and its impact on Muslim women.
· Increased understanding of intersectional identities.
· Increased understanding of how to collectively take action against racism and Islamophobia.
Participants will better understand online hate speech and extremism, including counter speech and counter-narrative. With the incorporation of real-life examples, alongside live discussions on effective strategies to counter online hate, participants will have an increased capacity to recognize online hate and build the required skills and resources to counter cyberhate speech and narratives effectively.
