In Solidarity and Unity
We, the core faculty in Global Asian Studies, continue to be outraged and mourn the genocide taking place in Gaza and the hate crimes that have ensued towards Arab, Palestinian, and Muslim communities in the diaspora. In the Chicagoland, we send our deepest condolences to the Al Fayoumi family who is mourning the loss of their six year old child, Wadea al-Fayoume to a hate crime.
For more information, please read the press release issued yesterday by the Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago).
The UIC Arab American Cultural Center (ARABAMCC) is holding space this week to center Palestinian and Arab students, and to reflect and be in community together during these difficult times.
Allies are welcome to show support.
