Prior to the panel, we’ll send you a link to the World Premiere of Adrijan Assoufi’s Cultures of Resilience – Quebec, a short-film that sheds light on Islamophobia in Quebec City.

This event is presented in partnership with TakingITGlobal, a charity empowering youth to understand and act on local and global challenges. Cultures of Resilience – Quebec is born from TakingITGlobal’s #RisingYouth initiative. The film captures the stories of three young Muslim Quebecers who have each successfully completed a #RisingYouth community service grant project to promote community solidarity.
