I attended this event with two white friends. Both felt the need to bring this issue back to their schools. One friend wanted to put Arab/Muslim issues more explicitly in her PTO’s equity statement. The other friend worked with her school to bring in a speaker on Arab culture to present to the students at her children’s school. The talk helped these women think about this issue related to Islamophobia and Anti Arab racism and take action. Nadine was able to connect with audience members parent to parent and had a good grasp of how to speak to educators. She would be great speaking at functions targeting parents. She would also do well presenting  as a part of anti-bias training for teachers.
