Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

While the Muslims in general, and Muslim organizations, leaders, and Imams in particular, overwhelmingly and unequivocally condemn every time there is a Muslim allegedly involved in domestic or international terrorist attacks, their press releases, condemnations, and voices are rarely heard. All these PR efforts hardly ever make a headline in media. Meanwhile, the Islamophobia and hate industry is thriving more than ever.

It is high time that Muslim community took steps beyond public relations exercises, articulated their story their way, and connected with their neighbours and friends as humans for a real, long-term impact. Our Dawa has to go beyond words. Our narrative of social justice and peace has to be genuine, real, and practical.

Join Imam Khalid Griggs (from North Carolina) in a FREE webinar on Sunday, June 9, 2013, 12:00 pm-1:30 pm EST for a practical lesson on building bridges of trust and understanding with our neighbours, co-workers and friends.
