We Are Not Them (WANT) Event – March 23-27

Titled the We Are Not Them (WANT) Movement, the event, which runs from March 23 to 27, will feature a number of workshops and seminars educating students about the stark differences between the Islamic faith, and those who have taken it hostage under a banner of violence.

Events occurring as part of the WANT Movement include mobile quizzes on myths surrounding the Muslim community, alongside opportunities to view “peace screenings” featuring poetry and literature from prominent Muslim scholars and leaders.

While the physical aspect of WANT Movement will wrap up this Friday, organizers hope it continues to educate students continuously, as information being released through the program is also being posted online.
