Seeking Justice, Speaking Truth:
An Evening of Celebration and Performance in Support
of The Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA)
The Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA) was founded as a place for our children and our city to learn about and celebrate Arabic language and culture. Then, however, hate groups rallied NYC tabloids and city leadership behind their agenda of racism and lies. Communities in Support of KGIA will not let anti-Arab and anti-Muslim hate jeopardize this school and the ability of Arab and Muslim educators and administrators such as Debbie Almontaser to take leadership within it. Arabic culture is an essential part of the cultural mosaic of Brooklyn and all of NYC. Join us for a night of speakers, art, and performance highlighting the importance of KGIA, its goals and its purpose, as well as the challenges it faces.
