Workshop attendees are urged to take stand against 'Islamophobia'
by Carla Hinton
In the immediate aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing, as rumors circulated that the deadly blast was the handiwork of Middle Eastern terrorists, Muslim Oklahomans were targets of anti-Muslim bigotry.
Kari Watkins, executive director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Musuem shared this recollection as she welcomed people to "Impact of Islamophobia in the Work of Nonprofits," a workshop held Wednesday at the national memorial and museum in downtown Oklahoma City.
About 55 metro residents and nonprofit leaders attended the event hosted by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits in partnership with the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum and the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma chapter (CAIR-OK).
