Pamela Prickett, RPLP postdoctoral fellow, will moderate discussion among three panelists: Imam Wazir Ali, director of the Mercy Community Center and resident Imam of the Houston Masjid of Al-Islam and Masjid Al-Qur'an; Craig Considine, lecturer in sociology at Rice University; and M. Hasna Maznavi, founder and president of the Women's Mosque of America.
