ABOUT THE CONVERSATION

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has approved partial implementation of the travel ban, and the evolving policy is the subject of fierce litigation and debate, what are the consequences for those Americans who are among its targets? What does it mean to be American when your ethnic identity has been co-branded with terrorism? 

These seven forums will explore what the travel ban, and the narratives at its core, mean for Iranian Americans, Iraqi Americans, Libyan Americans, Somali Americans, Sudanese Americans, Syrian Americans, and Yemeni Americans. Each forum will relate the perspectives of a given community through conversation with its people - from the arts, law, academia, and more - to help put the question in personal and historical perspective, while also mapping a path forward.
