Event description

Description

COMMUNITY DINNER AND DIALOGUE

This event is modeled after "Ask a Muslim" events taking place across the US. Face-to-face conversations are bringing people together in hopes that participants will leave with a better understanding about community members they may have previously thought of as "the other."

Join us for table conversations with Muslim and non-Muslim community members on what it means to belong, and what we can do to be more welcoming. Space is limited. RSVP required.

This event is designed specifically for people interested in understanding more about the experiences of Muslim people. In an effort to create a safe space for those who'll be sharing their experiences, we ask that participants come with curiosity and an open heart.

If you are supportive of our Muslim neighbors and want to show your support by attending, thank you. We appreciate your caring and would ask that you consider leaving space for others to come who may not necessarily feel the same as you. We are committed to community dialogues that are truly inclusive, and that means welcoming all perspectives so we can understand where we differ and find the places where we agree.

-- DINNER WILL BE PROVIDED -- Halal and vegetarian options

Ask a Muslim or Two is part of national Welcoming Week, a series of events that bring together people from all backgrounds (different races, religions, ages, newcomers and long-time residents) in a spirit of unity.
