Civil Rights in the 21st Century

Imam Dr. Omar Suleiman
Thursday, January 26, 2023
7:00-9:00 PM

Previous centuries have been characterized by human trafficking, colonialism, and global warfare. The 21st century has thus far witnessed mass incarceration, illegal detentions, voter suppression, gun violence, and a crackdown on civil liberties. Similar to past eras, grassroot movements are being led by Black and Indigenous communities to advocate for justice.

As we navigate the social and political landscape of a dynamic world, where do questions of privacy, personal freedoms, and the impacts of globalization intersect? How do we build a comprehensive human rights framework that encompasses a diverse global community?
