SISTERS’ DIALOGUE – Keep the Conversation Going about Islamophobic Attacks in YEG
In recent months, there were 4 incidents of assaults on Muslim women in what EPS called “hate motivated” attacks. This is a troubling development in Edmonton. Sisters’ Dialogue sees the need to address the growing anxiety and outrage following these attacks as well as address related issues.
