Author Event: Why Islamophobia Matters to Us All

Islamophobia, a gateway to racism and hate crimes, is at an all-time high. Peace Activist/Author Steve Slocum is on a mission to dismantle the fear-mongering of Islamophobia by dispelling the myths of Islam and encouraging face-to-face interaction with Muslims.

His book, Why Do They Hate Us? Making Peace with the Muslim World, takes a stand against Islamophobia and encourages readers to see through rising anti-Muslim sentiment. Slocum takes the spotlight off extremists and exposes the heart of the everyday Muslim, clearing up common misconceptions about jihad, Sharia law and the role of women in Islam. A thoughtful, firsthand examination of Islam’s peaceful mainstream sprinkled with stories from the lives of everyday Muslims and anecdotes from Slocum’s time as a Christian missionary in Kazakhstan.
