Field Trip to Islamic Center of Tucson

Students in the Contemporary U.S. Issues class visited the Islamic Center of Tucson, located near the UofA, to learn about the recent issues involving vandalism and racial/ religious antagonism that have occurred against the mosque and its members by college students at the nearby apartment complex. Sky Islands students have been learning about the larger social issue of anti-Islamic sentiment by investigating this local issue with the help of City Council member Steve Kozachik, and have visited the Islamic Center twice in the last six months.
