American Daughters: Reflections On Being Muslim in America
Thursday April 22, 2010: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Featuring Heather Laird and co-sponsored by the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, this event will feature speakers who will discuss being Muslim in America from their own experiences and local perspectives. Discussion will center on the diversity of our community, how Muslims deal with the issues of multiculturalism, and the tensions and barriers that exist in tackling this issue both within the Muslim community and the broader community. How these issues affect youth as well as adults will also be a focus of this important discussion.
Heather Laird is the Director for the Summer Arabic Institute, and a Fellow for the Institute of Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU). Heather will be joined in this discussion by several area Muslim women.
