Emerald Project in partnership with Utah Humanities, presents the third annual Slam the Islamophobia: a night of poetry, prose, and art performances to empower Muslim youth in Utah. As Muslim youth, our voices and experiences are often erased from mainstream conversations on identity. Come support young Muslims as they share their diverse stories and passions through poetry and other art forms! This is an annual project hosted by Emerald Project’s young team of Muslims who advocate for the accurate representation of Islam. Slam the Islamophobia is a space for Muslims to safely express themselves through the arts.
