A national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group will kick off a nationwide discussion of Islamophobia, or fear and hatred of Islam and Muslims, with a panel discussion from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Park Central, 7800 Alpha Road in Dallas. The panel is the first in a series of similar public discussions scheduled around the nation by the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The event titled “Do U.S. Policies Fuel Islamophobia?” will provide resources for gaining a better understanding of the negative impact anti-Muslim bigotry has on American society and on the nation’s interests worldwide. Panelists will also discuss the government’s actions in the case against officials of the closed Holy Land Foundation, which was based in Richardson.

The event is free and open to the public.

Call 972-849-9188 or 972-221-7241.
