  • Racism within the Muslim Community
  • Islamophobia: Making Sense of the Senseless
  • Hajj or Honeymoon?

Community Dinner

Our quarterly Community Dinners aim to bring people together of diverse backgrounds beliefs and ethnicities with the intention of getting to know one another and building positive relationships over a shared meal and conversation.

Featuring special guest speakers,  including:
