Muslim Voices Against the Islamic State and Islamist Extremism

Many have asked – Where are the Muslim voices that are not only against Islamist violence but also against the Islamist ideologies that fuel such extremism? This event featuring leading Muslim anti-Islamist public figures and reformers seeks to highlight such voices. Join us as our panel focuses on three issue areas most in need of attention – National security, counterterrorism, foreign policy; women’s and minority rights; and freedom of speech and religion. A battle of ideas around issues of terrorism has not often enough been engaged. The panelists will address the ideology of Islamism and ways of countering its influence.
