We hosted GetSMART (SoCal Muslim Anti-Racism Training) in Los Angeles twice–MuslimARC’s ART is now coming to Detroit for the first time for DART 2017!
This conference aims to bring together organizers and community leaders to build collaborations through critical consciousness raising on racial justice and critical anti-Islamophobia activism to address issues of water, community power, and sanctuary. This is an important moment to mobilize Muslims and allied communities to develop a proactive agenda to build power and counter harmful policies on a local, state, and national level by developing a shared vision for Metro Detroit.
The training will feature plenary sessions in the morning with breakout/small group sessions in the afternoon. The training will close with our Awards Ceremony. Breaks, a reflection room, and time for building with fellow training attendees are built-in to our day. Breakfast and lunch will be included for registrants. Special accommodations will be available – please let us know what you may need when you purchase your ticket.
