Event description

Description

With the widespread examples of Islamophobia plaguing the United States, the Muslim community has been active in the pursuit of showcasing the true message of Islam to the American people through local efforts and programs. Masjids and Dawah Activists have been on the forefront of this work.

The American Islam Dawah Retreat offers an opportunity for Dawah activists, youth, reverts, community leaders, and administrators to share experiences, learn from experts, and meet American Islam leaders who share a commitment to present the accurate message of Islam through Dawah practices and interfaith engagement with the community. The event is designed to provide a networking opportunity for like-minded peace advocates and help share best practices.

An important part of the program is an opportunity to qualify for a Financial Grant for projects that demonstrate effectiveness and innovation in the work of Dawah in their local community.

In addition, the event will celebrate the work happening in communities across the country to provide youth and reverts with opportunities to develop lifelong skills in Dawah oriented programs and a commitment to service.
