Traveling show takes look at Islamophobia




A road show about the “Islamophobia industry” is making its final stop at a Vancouver church. Faith Over Fear addresses “the Islamophobia industry, the threat it poses to our nation and civil liberties, and what we can do about it together,” according to a news release.

The event is at 1 p.m. Nov. 16 at St. Andrew Lutheran Church located at 5607 N.E. Gher Road. Speakers include the Rev. Terry Kyllo, a Lutheran pastor and director of Neighbors in Faith, an effort authorized by Lutheran and Episcopal churches in Western Washington; and Aneelah Afzali, a lawyer and executive director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network, an initiative of the Muslim Association of Puget Sound. There will be a Q&A segment.
