The event, MSA Live: The Legacy of Our Three Winners, will be held on Oct. 14 in the Great Hall of the Student Union.
The three victims Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu Salha and Razan Abu Salha were killed in a nearby apartment, and together they are known as the Our Three Winners.
The event will include speakers Linda Sarsour, a civil rights activist, and Farris Barakat, the brother of Deah Barakat.
Ahmad Tejan-Sie, outreach co-chairperson of UNC MSA, said Linda Sarsour is a prominent social justice activist. He said she is very well known in the triangle area and UNC MSA thought she would contribute a lot to the event.
“We wanted to host an event centering around Our Three Winners because it’s such an important issue in Chapel Hill,” Tejan-Sie said.
Youssef Zarrouk, outreach co-chairperson of UNC MSA, said the group wanted to hold an event to increase their outreach.
He said he became an outreach co-chairperson in an effort to make people aware of the presence of Muslims at UNC and the discrimination they face.
“I want to show that this type of hate and hate crimes can really happen in your own backyard,” Zarrouk said.
