Fear has become a major force in U.S. politics, resulting in the stereotyping and marginalizing of our Muslim-American neighbors. The Eden Area Interfaith Council sponsored a forum this past Saturday that aimed to counter fear with an informed message.
We heard from five practicing Muslims about what it is like today to be Muslim in America, Islamophobia, the challenge of ISIS, and how we can be better neighbors and peace builders in our community.
More than 175 people attended this informative panel and Q&A at the Castro Valley Library on January 30, 2016. Thank you to the wonderful panel of speakers: Dr. Asad Tarsin, Sara Kim, Hina Khan-Mukhtar, Mike Kim, and S. Mahdy Amine. If you would like to invite this panel to your congregation or community organization, their website is islamicspeakers.org
