Students supporting and opposing Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week will hold coinciding events in the next several days - leading up to a speech from conservative author David Horowitz Thursday night.

Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is a nationwide event that organizers say is meant to combat violent, radical Muslim ideologies. It is being hosted on campus by the GW Young America's Foundation, which was recently targeted by a satirical poster campaign mocking the event as racist.

The conservative week will include a panel of journalists, a movie screening, a protest in front of the women's studies department and a speech by Horowitz.
