In recent months, the rhetoric in our national and international conversations about Islam and the Muslim community has at times reached a fever pitch.  Radicalism within the Islamic world—like radicalism in other segments of humanity—is a genuine concern because it threatens indiscriminate violence.  But in an atmosphere of fear and misapprehension, it is easy to focus on equally indiscriminate threats and overlook the human reality and the people of those communities.

Join us for this Town Hall – a conversation, not lectures, moderated by Council President Sky Foerster.  Bring your questions & concerns – engage with our panelists, who offer a breadth of expertise and experience with Muslim communities at home and abroad.
