The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies condemns the violence and harassment directed at Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders, and stands in solidarity with community leaders, students, and educators who are actively engaged in anti-racist action. We cannot remain silent in the face of ongoing attacks on members of the AAPI community. We express our deepest sympathy to the families of the most recent victims and call upon our political, university, and community leaders to address this urgent crisis.
The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies is the central forum for the study of Islam and Muslim societies at Stanford University. We support research on Islam and Muslim societies across the globe, coordinate coursework across disciplines, and aim to deepen public understanding of Islam through events, digital media initiatives, and K-12 outreach.
