Alright everyone it’s time to get started with our large event of the quarter; Agents of Oppression! This will be held on Friday, March 3rd from 7pm – 9pm (volunteers must be there by 6:00pm) Like before, this is an opportunity for YOU to put on an event for the rest of the community. We are building off of our “Say No to Racism” event from last year to include fighting bullying and domestic violence as well. We will have a one hour talk about some oppressive elements in our community, namely racism and domestic violence and then we will move to the gym where YOU all will present on a topic. You can either:
1) Sign up to present on a cultural table that is not your own (so you can learn to appreciate the different Muslim cultures present in our community; an important step to beating racism and bigotry)
2) Table on fighting domestic violence, either spousal or against children
3) Prophetic stance on racism or domestic violence (what did the Prophet have to say about these oppressive elements in our community)
4) Bullying; either physical, emotional or cyber bullying.
You will be broken into groups of 3 and given a 6-foot table (with table cloth) to present. You are also free to do spoken word or videos IN ADDITION to your table presentations. We may end up doing video testimonials again this year, let me know if you’re interested!
