This discussion is for people of any faith or no faith at all.
Format for Muslim in America
The dialog starts with three or four people from the Muslim community. They will speak about their experiences as a Muslim in America for about 30 minutes. They will say what it is like to practice Islam here.
After that, the dialog then opens up to others in the room. Participate while we discuss the following:
- How we can we make this a better place for everyone?
- What can we can do to stand up to bigotry and hatred?
If time permits, others in the audience may have a chance to share their stories and experiences.
Goal for Muslim in America
This dialog is to find ways to work together to ensure a safer and more prosperous society for all. Help one another as we navigate an increasingly more difficult political and social climate.
