ARISE

2017 Bezos Scholar Ibraheem Khan and educator Greg Di Francesco founded ARISE to raise awareness about Islam’s values and combat Islamophobia through a verbal-arts themed event.

This Northside College Prep team from Chicago raised awareness about Islam’s values and combat Islamophobia through a verbal-arts themed event. Their event featured spoken word artists, rappers, and comedians in addition to a moderated panel discussion with Muslim, Jewish, and Christian leaders who talked about how aspects of each of their faiths are distorted when amplified to the global audience.
