University Task Forces on Antisemitism and Islamophobia – Seeking Participants for Focus Group

The University Task Forces on Antisemitism and Islamophobia are seeking participants for focus groups designed to assess the extent to which students, faculty, and staff are experiencing discrimination or harassment due to their identities, with an emphasis on those who identify as Israeli, Palestinian, Jewish, Muslim, Arab, or of Middle Eastern/North African origin, and to what degree they feel the climate is supportive and welcoming. These focus groups are open to all members of the UW Seattle community who share these identities. If you are interested in participating, please follow either of the links below. Please note that expressing interest does not guarantee you will be invited to participate as capacity is limited.
