MARYAM ZARINGHALAM: ISLAMOPHOBIA IN TRUMP'S AMERICA

"We can't expect marginalized communities, especially ones that find that their lives are constantly under threat, to stand up for themselves in places where they don’t feel safe…" This is just one of the points made in this emotional conversation on xenophobia, Islamophobia, science policy and gerrymandering with science policy fellow and public scholar, Dr. Maryam Zaringhalam.

Dr. Zaringhalam is the founder of NYC branch of 500 Women Scientists and producer of the live science show, The Story Collider. We discuss science policy, racism and partisan gerrymandering in this raw and moving conversation.
