This workshop seeks to engage the greater Los Angeles community across all religious, cultural and political boundaries, and to foster public conversation about the Qur’an and what constitutes a compassionate, egalitarian and peaceful practice in all its manifestations, with the intention to dispel simplistic or stereotypical interpretations and vilification of the Muslim religion.
