About Suzanne Barakat

Suzanne Barakat is a resident physician at University of California, San Francisco. She was raised in North Carolina, and attended UNC Chapel Hill. Since the devastating news of her family members being killed in Chapel Hill, NC, Barakat's mission has been to counter Islamophobia with her message of inclusivity, while sounding the alarm that unless we can stem the tide of hate, anyone labeled as "other" faces the risk of violence.
