The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, CAIR-OK and the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum presented a workshop and discussion on Islamophobia and the Work of Nonprofits in partnership with the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Oklahoma City. Executive Director of the Memorial Kari Watkins, Executive Director of the CAIR Oklahoma Adam Soltani, Vice President of External Affairs at the Center for Nonprofits Daniel Billingsley all spoke about senselessness of hatred – focusing on issues Muslims face and how nonprofit organizations, civic and faith leaders can address Islamophobia in their work and the community.
“One of the many things we realized from the Oklahoma City bombing, is violence and hate are never the answer. As people respond to the tragic events in Orlando, we hope this workshop encourages everyone to realize the impact that hate speech has in our community, at our workplaces and in our daily lives,” added Kari Watkins, Executive Director, Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
