ING Speakers Bureau Training Workshops in Dallas, Texas February 25-27; 2/24/11

02/24/11 – Today Muslims in the U.S. are enduring a wave of hostility and suspicion largely due to a rise in anti-Muslim rhetoric, fear- mongering and misrepresentation of Islam and Muslims. From the Park51 controversy and protests against proposed mosques across the country, to the planned Qur’an burning and continuous demonization of Muslim individuals and groups, Islamophobia has pervaded the media, politics, and the general culture in the U.S. The need for better education about Muslims is crucial. According to a 2010 Gallup Poll, 53% of Americans have an unfavorable view of Islam; 52% admit to feeling prejudice toward Muslims; 66% disagree that Muslims accept other religions; 68% disagree that Christians’ and Muslims’ religious beliefs are basically the same; and 81% disagree that most Muslims believe women and men should have equal rights. However this and other polls have indicated that perceptions about Islam improve by 50% if people have a personal relationship with a Muslim. The onus is upon Muslims to represent themselves rather than allowing others to misrepresent them. Each one of us can make a difference in changing perceptions to increase interreligious understanding and mutual respect among all Americans, and create a more harmonious society and world.

Listening to Those We Serve

I thought that the training [by the Muslim speaker] was outstanding. It was relevant, informative, and engaging… this is training that all public officials could benefit from, and I learned a lot about Muslims that I did not know. Everything we learned can be put to practical use and will ensure we continue to offer the highest standards of service to all members of our community.

Police Commander

This was a very educational panel and presentation by the speakers today [Muslim, Jewish, African American, Asian American, Indigenous, and Hispanic]. Anyone who hasn’t had or taken the time to learn the roots of structural and historical elements of racism, colorism and what we can do about it would gain a great deal from this ING panel.
