On April 28, the New Jersey Chapter of ADC will convene a forum addressing the repercussions and affects of school bullying on Arab, South Asian and Muslim youth. Citing the importance of the presentations, Dr. Aref Assaf, president of American Arab Forum said "I have heard of several cases where Arab and Muslim children have been the constant victims of harassment by fellow students. Accusations of being a terrorist, a foreigner and un-American top the list of slurs thrown at helpless children."
The details of the forum are below.
