      The xenophobic rhetoric of the 2016 presidential election has only intensified since Donald Trump took office, and campaign promises have manifested into tangible policies and executive orders that have stalled immigration applications, torn families apart, grounded travelers, and instilled fear in entire immigrant communities throughout the nation. As minorities, Muslims have not been the only target of such attacks, but their vilification has not only persisted; it has become ever more pronounced. Consider, for example, how Trump's campaign promise to build a "wall with Mexico" has been eclipsed by his repeated attempts to instate a so-called Muslim Ban. As a frequent commentator on American Muslim issues, including in mainstream U.S. media, Hussam Ayloush will trace the evolution of Islamophobic policies from the fringe to the mainstream. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute.

Do you live above Claremont, at the beach, or in the high desert where different climates and soil types are challenging you in surprising ways? Or does your garden have clay soils or a large oak tree under which plant after plant seems to wither away? Meet with RSABG nursery and horticulture staff at the Lenz Classroom for this pleasant two-hour workshop where you can ask all your questions, express your gardening concerns and frustrations, and receive the advice and suggestions you need! This workshop is scheduled exactly one week before the launch of RSABG's Grow Native Nursery season (October - May).
